Largest independent retailer of toys in the UK
The Entertainer is the largest independent retailer of toys in the UK founded by Gary and Catherine Grant in Amersham, Buckinghamshire in 1981. The toy retailer has strong company values, believing in enthusiasm, honesty, fairness, care, outstanding service and loyalty, as well as being involved with many charities big and small, encouraging stores to get involved with their local community from donating raffle prizes to volunteering.
The Entertainer introduced Pennies in all of its stores during the summer of 2011, nominating four children’s hospitals to benefit from the money raised. The company’s incredibly generous customers raised over £100,000 in the first six months alone. Since then, the company has expanded its support to include five other children’s charities, as customers continue to raise thousands for charity every week, helping children all over the UK from Bristol to Glasgow.
