The Entertainer defies high street gloom as sales and profits soar

The entertainer

Family owned The Entertainer recorded rising sales and profits last year despite ongoing struggles with the high street.

The toy specialists’ pre-tax profits soared 29% to £14.7m and sales were up £37.3m to £204.4m during the year according to The Times.

The Entertainer was founded by husband and wife Gary and Catherine Grant who pocketed a £2.6m dividend following the results.

However, the couple give 10% of the toy retailer’s profits to charity.
