The Entertainer opened its first store in Dostyk Plaza in Almaty, Kazakhstan in partnership with Zeta Retail.
Commenting on the new partnership with Zeta, which operates three other reputable international retail brands, The Entertainer’s founder & chairman, Gary Grant said: “Kazakhstan is an exciting new market for The Entertainer, allowing us to bring our unique style of toy retailing to a whole new set of customers. Our first store is located in Dostyk Plaza in Almaty but we see the opportunity for a significant number of stores across the country. We are delighted with the partnership we have with Zeta Retail and we look forward to further expansion in Kazakhstan over the course of the next 12 months. Kazakhstan represents the first of at least three new market launches for The Entertainer in 2018, and we look forward to finding further partners to grow The Entertainer brand globally.”
