How to use the boarded door in Hogsmeade in Hogwarts Legacy

If you have explored Hogsmeade, you have probably seen the boarded-up building that is collecting dust. This building is located in the southeast of Hogsmeade near the South Hogsmeade Floo Flame fast travel point. Unfortunately, this area is only able to be accessed by those who have purchased the game on PS5. Those who are playing the game on PC or Xbox won’t be able to access this area for some time.

Even those on PS5 won’t be able to interact with this building for a long time into the game. After you have completed the third trial, you will be able to find a house elf named Penny standing out in front of the shop. Talk to her and it will start up a PlayStation-exclusive quest called Minding Your Own Business. During this quest, you will be tasked with purchasing a shop and then clearing out the ghost that lies within it.

The Minding Your Own Business quest is one of the longest quests in the game. Once the quest is completed, you will end up with your own shop that is run by Penny. You can go to your shop to sell the gear that you obtain for more than you would be able to sell at any of the other shops.
