Whimsic Alley Closing

On April 29th Whimsic Alley announced on their Facebook page that they would be closing down. The iconic store on Wilshire features an amazing set-up inside that looks like you're walking into a London street corner and in the back they had a replica of The Great Hall from the Harry Potter films where many patrons had parties.They have not announced an actual closing date as of yet, but have already started selling products at close-out prices. Their last fair is scheduled for Memorial Weekend.

We can only surmise that after many legal battles over Harry Potter content in the store that it finally took it's tole on legal fees or the store was forced to shut down by the law. It was never an official Harry Potter store and with Universal having a finished Harry Potter land, they probably pushed a little harder to have it shut down.

We'll give you an update as to when we hear of a closing date.

We suggest getting over there before it shuts down, it does look magical inside. Check out or review of the place here.
