    A Christian toyshop owner faces losing £2.3million by shutting his stores on Christmas Eve, as it is on a Sunday.

    Gary Grant, whose chain The Entertainer has 149 branches, will give his 1,700 staff the day off on one of the busiest shopping days of the year.

    He said: “We don’t trade on Sundays – any Sundays.

    “Keeping the Sabbath holy is one of the Ten Commandments.

    “We will be closed for the second-largest trading day of the year.

    “As a Christian, I believe in families.

    “For our staff, the fact they have a day off with the family on a Sunday is really important.”
