After 49 years in the toy industry, Terry Smith has retired from his role as senior supervisor at The Entertainer’s Beaconsfield store.
Terry began his career at the age of 15 at Cliftons in Buckinghamshire. In 1973, Cliftons changed hands and when the new Maidenhead branch opened in 1986, Terry managed both stores for 10 years.
Terry went on to join The Entertainer in Beaconsfield as a sales assistant and then senior supervisor, where he worked and supported the store manager for nine years.
Terry commented: “I am delighted I stayed in the toy industry which I love, but I’ve decided now is the time to see friends and family and do all the jobs I haven’t managed to do while at work. I will really miss the run up to Christmas after so many years selling toys to families.”
Gary Grant, founder of The Entertainer, commented: “Terry has been a huge asset to the toy industry over the years and will be sorely missed by both staff and customers alike at our Beaconsfield store. I wish him all the very best on his retirement.”
