Fred and George Weasley

Weasleys' Wares was a small business created by the Weasley twins in the early 1990s, when they were at Hogwarts.[1] They exchanged Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans, Cauldron Cakes and Pumpkin Pasties for Famous Witch and Wizard Cards, Chocolate Frogs, pages from the Folio Bruti and passwords to enter Secret passages at Hogwarts. They also had bets during the Triwizard Tournament.


1991–1992 school year

Between 1991 and 1992, the shop was located in a disused bathroom in the sixth floor of the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.[2] They started selling Famous Witch and Wizard Cards and all kinds of magical sweets.

In addition to Weasleys' Wares, the twins also established other shops in Classroom 5B (which, being disused at the time, served as the headquarters of the Wizard Card Collectors' Club): Weasley Candy Emporium and the Weasley Supplies Bargain Basement.

1992–1993 school year

In the following school year, Fred and George opened a new branch in a room adjacent to the Entrance Hall.[3] Fred was in the sixth floor while George was in the new branch.

1993–1994 school year

In 1993, the Entrance Hall branch was moved to the disused seventh floor bathroom, most likely because they had more space and a secret room to hide the Marauder's Map. The sixth floor bathroom shop was still there. They sold new passwords to Secret passages at Hogwarts, which Harry Potter bought.[4]

1994–1995 school year

During this year the Triwizard Tournament was held at Hogwarts. It is unknown if they continued with their shops at the bathrooms, but they found Harry Potter several times and sold him their products.[5] Also, they had bets during the tournament.[6] At the end of the year, they closed their shop in order to start their first big business with the money Harry gave to them, Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes.

Behind the scenes

  • The shop has not appeared in any of the books, but only in the video games. It appears briefly in the fourth film.
  • It is unknown if the products they made in the fourth and fifth books and tested in students were sold at the shop.
