Argos - just about everything you need

AdvantagesSee review

DisadvantagesSee review

"...within 10 miles of an Argos store which is quite a high concentration meaning that you never have to go too far if you need something urgently. They also employ over 23,000 people in their stores, warehouses and head office. During the financial year 2002/2003 they took over £3 billion in sales which is pretty good! ------Stores------ As I have already told you a bit about the number of stores I will not go into too much more detail, other ..."

Argos All You Need To Know

AdvantagesLots of products to choose from

DisadvantagesCan end up waiting a long time

"...you go, there is an Argos store. They have a wide variety of products for sale, and their prices tend to be very reasonable. On display, they have things out of the book. They do not have everything on display though and you can not take what you want off the shelves. Everything is alarmed. You only have to pick something up, off the shelf, and a really loud alarm will sound. The products on display are for show only and should not be touched. To ..." Read review

The big store that has the big book

AdvantagesGood all round, catalogue comes out twice a year, big catalogue, much more I can't fit in here!

DisadvantagesMaybe heavyness of catalogue if I was being picky

"ARGOS CATALOGUE AND ARGOS ITSELF + IT'S WEBSITE Argos catalogue: The legendary Argos catalogue is launched twice a year with spring/summer and autumn/winter available. It gets bigger every time and the spring/summer 2012 edition has 1766 pages. Its very heavy but it's free so don't have to pay for it. During the '80s and '90s the catalogue used to be quite small and a bit like a christmas guide you get from Argos, but now it's big it's got ..." Read review

an everyday store for everyday products

Advantageshuge range, reasonable prices, storecard with instant interest free, good products, 16 day money back policy

Disadvantagesstaff could smile, trying to do too much (insurance??)

"...count the reasons….. Personally, I think Argos is THE lazy buggers best friend! That means I am right at home there hahaha. Every quarter or so there is a new catalogue (made from several trees) to collect. Its always brighter and ‘packed with more products at cheaper prices’. A claim that is actually fulfilled every time. This is not a fancy shop, its not your John Lewis or your Marks and Sparks. It’s an everyday store ..." Read review
