About our guest
Gary Grant is the founder and managing director of The Entertainer toy shops. He and his wife Catherine opened a local toy shop in Amersham which has since expanded to become the UK’s largest independent toy retailer, currently operating 104 stores.
As a Christian who publicly talks about his faith, he has led prayer meetings at their head office at times of crisis, namely 9/11. His faith also affects the way the company runs with no stores opening on Sundays. The Entertainer gives 10% of its profits to charity in line with the biblical principles of tithing. ‘In everything we do, faith is central to our decisions.’
Whilst other retailers are suffering in a tough market, and despite not trading on Sunday – now the busiest day of the week on some high streets – The Entertainer continues to see growth in the face of competition.
Gary’s faith has had an incredible impact on many employees and communities. Join us to hear more of his story and the way he runs a successful business while sticking to his Christian values.
