So long as Potterheads live, Harry Potter fever will never truly die.
The magic of the wizardry world endures, with people willing to part with their cash for Potter-themed weddings, educational institutions, even Christmas dinner.
But usually, you get something tangible for your money – a cute replica, an experience, memories or furniture to show your guests that you stan Gryffindor.
Poundland’s latest Potter offering is something a little more quirky, and a little less real – an invisibility cloak.
Except, as its name suggests, the cloak is invisible meaning you can’t see it. Therefore it’s non-existent.
Don’t worry though, the budget retailer isn’t just exploiting people’s enthusiasm for all things Harry, they’re actually offering the ‘cloaks’ for free.
So, in essence, you get to come away with a free hanger. Neat.
As part of their largest Halloween offering, Poundland’s latest venture comes in the form of a purple card with the words ‘invisibility cloak FREE’, which is handy as there’s no fabric to help you work out what it is.
Poundland trading director Tim Bettley said: ‘We intended to trial this item last year but couldn’t find it in the distribution centre.
‘But now we’ve found it, we think our customers will see the value, if not the cloak.’
Also included in their range for the spooky season are Skull Tealight Holders, Trick or Treat Loot Bags and Pumpkin Candy Buckets.
But if you’ve really got your eye on the invisibility cloaks, you’ll have to run down to one of six stores that are stocking them.
It will be available at London Stratford High Street, Salford City, Bristol Galleries, Byker Retail Park (Newcastle), Leeds Lands Lane, Birmingham Corporation Street.
Let’s hope it doesn’t sell out.
