On Oct. 26, Netflix plans to open a “Stranger Things” themed pop-up store in Aventura Mall, providing not only exclusive merchandise but an immersive fan experience.

The store will include limited-time merchandise, customizable apparel stations and even Halloween costumes. Real locations in the show such as the Byers’ house, Starcourt Mall and Palace Arcade will be modeled throughout the store. There will be photo ops, interactive encounters with workers dressed as the iconic Scoops Ahoy employees and unique experiences straight from the Upside Down in about a 30-minute-long time frame.

“Stranger Things: The Store” plans to open from 11 a.m.-9 p.m. on Mondays through Saturdays, and 11 a.m.-8 p.m. on Sundays. Netflix has confirmed that the store will remain open through Stranger Things Day, Nov. 6, although, they have not revealed when it will officially close.

Although one can walk in, Netflix suggests getting a free reservation ticket at for priority access in case of a long line; it is recommended to arrive about 10 minutes before the start of the reserved time. Virtual tickets on one’s phone and a virtual queue for walk-ins at the store will be available via QR code. Additionally, the store will not accept cash payments of any kind.

The pop-up has already opened in New York, Los Angeles, Paris and Chicago, and will also open in Dallas. For more information and updates, follow @Stranger.Things.Store on Instagram.
