Review of "Argos Catalogue"
Argos is one of the favourite places for Chrismas presents. Every year you tend to see endless streams of people exit the shop with gigantic bags bursting with goods. There's lots of reasons for this.My guess to why this this is one fo Britians favourite shops is because it's extremely easy to buy from. They always have a million trees worth of catalouges, which you simply can pick up, take home and decide what to buy. If you're an especially lazy bugger, you can order your goods directly to your house for a small fee (£3.95 if goods are under £100 but you can have as many goods delivered as you want within this £3.95 and if your products cost more than £100 it'sfree delivery for you!)The sizes, type and price of every object is clearly displayed, along with it's number code.
Argos has recently expanded its range of items and services. Like many other companies, they've started their own loyalty card. You can now basically order your entire wedding from a special catalouge. Magazine subscriptions, flowers, gift vouchers and virtucally any type of insurance you could ever want is all in once 900 page cataloge.Once you've decided what you want, you go into the shop and write down the number of the goods you want. Recently they've put clever little machines that you type the code into it and it teels you if there's any in stock. This is really helpful as it stops you going up to pay for it and finding out there's none left.
Then you go up, pay for it and get a reciept. With that reciept you go up to a counter, hand over your reciept and get your item. It's as easy as that.The main thing I buy from Argos is odds and ends that aren't particuarly special such as hairdryers and inpersonal things. I don't think I'd ever give gift vouchers as they're so inpersonal.
Unfortunately for Argos, there's a very similar shop just emerged. It's called Index and the only ral differences in it and Argos are that it's not as good quality as Argos is but it is a bit cheaper. Personally I prefer Argos.Argos also has a really good range of stock. Andything from drills to make up sets. The quality of the stock is fairly good, but the main disadvantage is that you cannot be 100% sure of exactly what your getting will look like, but apart fromt hat I cannot find a fault with Argos.
