Renowned wandmaker Mr Ollivander owns the wand shop Ollivanders: Makers of Fine Wands Since 382 BC on Diagon Alley. His shop is widely considered the best place to purchase a wand.
More about Mr Ollivander:
He was born on September 25th to a Wizard father and Muggle-born mother. He was married and had one son and one daughter.
In Hogwarts, he was sorted to the Ravenclaw house.
Mr Ollivander is arguably the finest maker of wands in the world, and many foreigners travel to London to purchase one of his wands in preference to those on offer in their native lands. Mr Ollivander grew up in the family business, in which he showed precocious talent. He had the ambition of improving upon the cores and wand woods hitherto used and from his earliest days conceived a single-minded, even fanatical, determination in his pursuit of the ideal wand.
