Argos has been part of the UK shopping landscape for decades, first arriving in 1972 when it was set up by the Green Shield stamps founder. Since its launch it has undergone many transformations and now forms part of the Sainsbury’s group. Argos can now be found integrated into the Sainsbury´s stores, sharing the premises to offer even greater convenience to customers who want to buy from both brands.
Although the internet wasn’t around when Argos first launched, it adapted to the new technology well and is now renowned for being a leader in online purchasing, together with its physical stores. Customers have the option to buy online and then choose between either home delivery or collection at their local store. It’s also possible to make a regular purchase in-store too with payment by cash or card.
The set-up of Argos is unique and instantly recognisable to the generations of shoppers who have used their services. Unlike a conventional shop, Argos has very little on display, instead keeping everything boxed up in their warehouse. Customers wishing to buy must look through their catalogue, available both physically and online, and check to see if an item is in stock before being able to purchase.
Argos offers a full range of goods for both the home and garden at competitive prices. From sofas for the lounge through to lawnmowers and patio cleaners for your outside space, there’s everything you could possibly need plus much more.
For children Argos also have a comprehensive toys collection and it’s often possible to find good deals and promotions, such as 3 for 2. Use your TroopScout discount codes and you could be saving even more cash when you buy.
There are hundreds of Argos stores around the country, primarily located within branches of Sainsbury’s. This means that even if you have to move about, there’s a very good chance you’ll still be close to a local Argos branch. Stock can vary from one branch to another but it’s possible to have products transferred if necessary, as well as many also being available for home delivery.
If an item isn’t available in your local Argos store it’s easy to check where the stock is being held and whether there are any available in other nearby branches. The sheer number of Argos branches around the country means that it’s often possible to try another local store to find the goods you want.
