Title: Owner and Manager
Company: Granicy Square
Location: Lancaster, California, United States
Robin Granicy-Sergent, Owner and Manager at Granicy Square, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Business Owners for dedication, achievements, and leadership in specialty retail.
Since 1964, Granicy Square has been a family-owned pillar of the Lancaster business community. When Ms. Granicy-Sergent took over leadership of the store in 1991, she set to work building it into a unique specialty retail destination combining her passion for antiques and World War I memorabilia with the pet food and sundries business that clients had come to rely on in years prior. Before working full-time to manage and develop Granicy Square, Ms. Granicy-Sergent enjoyed a career in the financial services industry, spending 12 years in banking and data processing.
With a thriving business built off of high-end fresh and prepared pet foods and utilities, including truck rentals and wooden spool and pallet sales, Ms. Granicy-Sergent felt that Granicy Square was strong enough to diversify its offerings. A dedicated historian of WWI and postwar ephemera, including images and military items, she has developed the shop into a treasury of authentic, one-of-a-kind antique treasures presented with the care of an enthusiast in the years since taking the reigns. Civically, she is an active volunteer in projects to support and memorialize veterans. She has also received awards for her work on a monument to Belgian WWI forces, as well as for her local work on behalf of those who have served in the military.
In addition to her dedication to veterans and military history, Ms. Granicy-Sergent donates her time and energy to local food banks and Bark in the Park. The latter of which is an annual community event promoting responsible pet adoption and ownership. Reflecting on her remarkable career, she credits her success to her sustained love for her work and to the example of strong business ownership and community stewardship set for her by her parents.
