Muggle wanted. Oliver Dall, the owner of award-winning wizarding shop, Oliver’s Brighton, is seeking a successor after deciding to hang up his hat and robes.
The purveyor of quality magical goods first opened its doors in 2017 and has already won 11 awards and garnered more than 2,000 five-star reviews across TripAdvisor, Google, and Facebook. The shop offers a truly magical experience to customers, with a whole range of wizarding supplies on offer, from wands for budding aurors, to quidditch supplies for would-be champion seekers, and of course, a full array of authentic magical treats and snacks.
The store, which is in the North Laine area of Brighton, on Trafalgar Street, is being marketed by business broker Hilton Smythe. It is available for purchase by one lucky Harry Potter-enthusiast for £120,000.
The shop is currently open Tuesday-Thursday from 10am-5pm and Friday and Saturday from 10am to 6pm. All merchandise is officially licensed by Warner Bros. The business offers a wide selection of products, accessible to all fans of Harry Potter and the Fantastic Beasts franchise. Prices start from as little as 50p for an official Harry Potter postcard, and increase to £300, for an exact replica of a Firebolt broomstick.
The sale of the business includes all the fixtures, fittings and particulars needed to run a busy and popular tourist shop.
Oliver Dall, current owner of Oliver’s Brighton, said: “I grew up as part of the first generation of Harry Potter superfans and running Oliver’s Brighton has been a dream come true for me.
“I’m going to be getting married soon, and my future wife is a chef. We’d like to start our next business adventure together. It’s been an incredible four years but now I’m ready to handover the baton – or wand – to the next custodians.”
Neil Young, Valuer at Hilton Smythe, said: “This is a once in a (full) blue moon opportunity for an aficionado of the wizarding world to make a vault of galleons doing something they love and bringing a little magic to the south coast.
“There is significant scope to further build and develop the business by increasing opening hours and expanding the online retail offer. Oliver has invested his heart and soul developing the business which he has fitted out to an exceptionally high standard.”
Mr Dall added, “Death Eaters need not apply!”
