Fictional Stores We Wish Were Real

Did you know that fictional stores from media could actually come to fruition? Take Willy Wonka, for example. In Ronald Dauhl's beloved novel, the fictional candy company is a household name. When the motion picture became successful in real life, physical candy was sold under the Wonka branding. The magical shops in J.K. Rowling's world of Harry Potter can now be visited at their amusement park, thanks to the franchise's success. Retailers can create an experience by drawing inspiration from fictional stories! Here are some fictional retail stores we wish we could shop at (and which products of ours they would use):
