Everything about Wynott's Wands is straight out of a Harry Potter novel.
From the store's cashier, decked out from head to toe like Albus Dumbledore, to the rows of magic wands at the ready, exact replicas of those found for sale in the book series' famed Diagon Alley.
The wand shop, which opened on Pickering Wharf in September, is gearing up for its first Halloween in Salem, and management said they are hoping that the holiday rush will help put the store on the map.
On Monday, Samantha King, manager at Remember Salem, the store's affiliate on Essex Street, said the press was on to get Wynott's open in time for Halloween.
"Remember Salem has been open for about two years, so we know how busy it gets around here during Halloween," King said, adding the she expects business to be brisk at Salem's newest Harry Potter-themed destination.
