exclusive collectible replicas of Ollivander’s Wands
New York, NY – August 29, 2023 – Barnes & Noble is proud to announce they will now be the exclusive nationwide retailer for the highly-detailed replicas of Ollivander’s Wands previously only available at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme parks and the Harry Potter New York store. This exclusive Ollivander’s collection is the centerpiece of the newly revamped Harry Potter Shops found only at Barnes & Noble.
The collection includes intricately designed replicas of the wands of Harry, Hermione and Ron, as well as those of Sirius Black, Professor Snape, Voldemort and Dumbledore. Each wand is packaged in a deluxe, display-ready facsimile of the original Ollivander’s box. Fans are encouraged to visit their closest store to see the beautiful details for themselves.
In addition to the exclusive wand collection, Barnes & Noble is the premier retailer for Harry Potter books, gifts, toys, games and more, with many exclusive items across all categories. The bookseller will also carry exciting new Harry Potter releases from premium brands like LEGO, Schleich, MinaLima and others.
