Hundreds of fans of the famous wizard's apprentice lined up for hours in the rain to be the first to discover the three layers entirely dedicated to the world created by writer J.K. Rowling's imagination.


"It's really magical," said Arguerite Suarez, whose boyfriend had booked his place in the queue since six in the morning, four hours before the scheduled opening.


The 30-year-old fan chose to buy Bellatrix Listerang's wand and a number of figurines.


"In my heart, I am a witch," she told AFP. "I really want to own a wand to experience my favorite fantasy world," she added.


As for Robin Juarez, 27, and his wife, they came from far away Texas to participate in the opening of this two-thousand-square-meter store, located near the famous Flatiron Building.


"We are so happy to be here. I love everything about Harry Potter," said the young man, wrapping his neck in a red and gold Gryffindor scarf.


And police officers maintained security since the night before the opening at the place where a long line of Harry Potter fans extended, who continued to flock throughout the morning.


Many took selfies inside the store in front of the red telephone booths that in Harry Potter novels and films transport witches and witches to the Ministry of Magic.


Others wore Quidditch T-shirts or sipped Butterbeer, while some browsed novels that had sold half a billion copies all over the world.


The store was scheduled to open in 2020, but the pandemic has delayed the date.


Alexandra Ewing, 19, thought it was worth the wait.


"It's the best moment of my life," she added. "I keep trying to hold back my tears. I love it."
