Owner John Manning said: “The popularity of the Harry Potter series meant we knew it would do really well, especially in the run-up to Christmas.”

The 43-year-old, from Ipswich, said: “We decided to open the Harry Potter shop to offer the whole family a joint shopping experience as it’s something the kids can interact with whilst the adults look at more serious homeware upstairs.”
