One of the UK’s biggest toy retailers is coming to Kings Lynn and creating 10 new jobs in the process.
The Entertainer has confirmed plans to bring its toy expertise to the town and will be opening its new store at 142 Norfolk Street on 14 July.
It’s the award-winning retailer’s first store in Norfolk and comes as part of a major expansion plan for the family-run business. The company opened an average of one new store a month last year and is on track to do the same in 2012.
In January 2012 it was named Toy Retailer of the Year at the Toy Industry Awards. Owner and founder of The Entertainer Gary Grant credits the success of the business to family values, fair pricing and a great product range.
He said: “We’re a company that prides itself on customer service and engaging with the community, and we can’t wait to share these values with people in Kings Lynn.”
The Entertainer is a family business and one of the biggest toy retailers in the UK. The first store was opened in Amersham, Bucks, by husband and wife Gary and Catherine Grant – now the proud owners of more than 65 stores.
By the end of 2012 the company will have a total of 75 stores nationwide, and celebrated its 30th anniversary in May 2011.
The online side of the business is www.TheToyShop.com, which had 4.5m visitors in 2011
