"...facility of the famous company Argos that first opened its doors to the public in July 1973 offering a huge 4700 products for sale in there first 250-page catalogue. The idea was that the company produced a catalogue to promote all the products you could buy from them and allowing them to have smaller shops as they only required minimal display features and payment features with a warehouse at the back of this facility. This allowed the customers ..." Read review

Everything but the kitchen sink

AdvantagesThe ability to reserve items and collect from your local store if you do not want to pay the delivery charge

DisadvantagesThe search function could do with some updating

"Having shopped at Argos for the past ten years regularly, both via the web and in their shops, I have come to the conclusion that there is little need for me to visit the stores any more, due to the wonderful service I receive by ordering online.

Don't shop for it! Argos it!!

AdvantagesSaves you time.

DisadvantagesCan be slightly confusing.

Even now, you go into the store, Try to find a parking space, wait ages to get to a catalogue, and then find your items out of stock. Then You get stuck in a mile long queue to pay. Once you pay, you then have to wait for your item. Now they think they are clever with their new waiting system. But ..." Read review

I Need Sunglasses

AdvantagesSee review

DisadvantagesSee review

"...products offered that has established Argos as a major high street retailer. The Home Page =========== The Argos home page looks rather like an explosion in a paint factory. In keeping with the latest wave of bold, bright television commercials, you may want to put some sunglasses on before you have a look. The page takes an average amount of time to load – I can’t help but think that the removal of some of the bright photographs ..." Read review
