According to the site, “The company’s Canadian heritage and perspective, along with its fast growing e-commerce platform, product selection, resources and scale, make it a unique and compelling player in the market. This change reflects the confidence in Grand & Toy’s brand legacy and a strong commitment to its long-term success.”
