The Big, Big Book online for even easier access ! Review with images

AdvantagesReservation,stock checking, delivery, security and ease of use

DisadvantagesNone

"...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. Argos stock just about every conceivable item you could want for the home, together with personal items, garden furniture and toys. How many times have you braved the crowds at Christmas time, and had ..." Read review

Wow, that was fast.....

AdvantagesGifts for all occasions | Reasonable prices | 16 day money back guarantee

DisadvantagesDelivery charge a little high for smaller (cheaper) items | Site a little slow to load

"I love looking through the Argos catalogue, there's always so many different items that I didn't realise I couldn't live without. And it's such a wonderful way of composing gift lists, but it does have it's disadvantages... ...There are normally long queues in my local store to just pay for your goods, and then you might find out that the person in front of you has just bought the last of that must have item (believe me that's happened to me more ..."

Don't shop for it! Argos it!!

AdvantagesSaves you time.

DisadvantagesCan be slightly confusing.

" I have shopped at Argos since I can remember. I remember going in with my mum and dad when I was a kid. But even back then, the queue were diabolical!! 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

ARGOS - STORES AND WEBSITE

AdvantagesQuick service - good deals - competitive prices - easy to use sites

DisadvantagesLow stock availability

"...been a big fan of argos for many years and am lucky enough to have an argos store right across the road and the website at my fingertips 24/7. I have ordered a wide range of products from argos.co.uk and have used a lot of the services offered - from the online reserve feature - to the delivery service. Products ordered from argos - have ranged from televisions to vaccum cleaners all the way to batteries. The delivery service is fantastic - ..." Read review

Argooos, my hero.

AdvantagesDead easy for the housebound or lazy

DisadvantagesDelivery agents work office hours

"...and I found that, actually, Argos had the best selection with the widest range of prices. The site was extremely easy to navigate and sold a wide range of products as you would expect. We have a local store, but it isnít one of the huge superstores and has a limited range of items. I could have gone to Chatham, 8 miles away where there is a larger store, but parking can be a problem and also the traffic at times is backed up. So much easier on ..." Read review

Frustration, lack of information and no order

AdvantagesExcellent for finding information

DisadvantagesUseless for ordering anything

"...made our choice from the Argos catalogue as that was the only place we could find all the solid wooden furniture we wanted at a price that we could afford! Now, being the sort of girl who likes the occasional special offer, I thought that if we ordered online via Mypoints we could get points as well and get some vouchers for our trouble. Good eh? Or so I thought! I logged into www.argos.co.uk and was immediately impressed with the site. It was ..." Read review

Shopping Made Even Easier!

AdvantagesClick and Collect, Great Value Delivery Service, Easy To Use

DisadvantagesCant think of any!!!

"...have an up to date Argos catalogue as they sell pretty much everything in one place and it is always reasonably priced. However since the internet has taken off I have also become a fan of shopping the lazy way and decided to check out their website, Argos.co.uk. The first time I wanted to use this site was actually to look for a new tumble dryer, but the problem was it had to be a condensing tumble dryer due to the fact that we live in a flat ..."

For Argos I was almost impressed

Advantagesfast when you know what you want

Disadvantagesnot very user friendly if you are browsing

"...wanted would be one from Argos as there is a good selection in the catalogue. December is not a good time of year to go into our local Argos, in fact I don't think any time of year is good to go to our local Argos, there are always too few staff and those actually working there give the distinct impression that they would rather be anywhere else. So, once I had chosen the scanner I wanted I decided to try the Argos web site. I was a bit silly initially ..." Read review

Argos: The Book of Dreams

AdvantagesReserve and Collect, Quick collection

DisadvantagesItems not always in stock

"...using Argos== I first heard of Argos around ten years ago (maybe more but I just can't remember exactly) when a family member brought home the latest catalogue I actually used Argos myself a few years later when I wanted to buy an Action Replay for my Playstation 2. ==My experience with Argos== I have always enjoyed my experience at Argos as I have never had to wait longer than 15 minutes for a product (I usually only have to wait less than 5 ..."

No annoying sales people in this shop!

AdvantagesA unique way to shop.

Disadvantagescan get very busy

"...am a huge fan of Argos and have used them ever since I can remember. I remember loving the fact that I could go into one shop and get all of my Christmas presents in one place. What do they sell? If you are looking for something to buy and can't think which shop will stock it then I can guarantee Argos will have it. They sell just about everything that you can imagine from furniture to lamps and toys to bags, from jewellery to beauty product and ..." Read review

Dont give up the day job

AdvantagesArgos shopping for those out in the sticks

Disadvantagesslower than using a telephone and catalogue

"...usually end up buying from Argos after a price comparison has been made. It is true that to a large extent the choice is made by catalogue, with the actual item unseen, but on the rare occasion that I have been unhappy with my selection, Argos has replaced the item or refunded my cash with no trouble whatsoever. As in many homes, we have the latest catalogue to hand, and before any major purchase is made, the cry of “have you checked Argos” ..." Read review

It is, but it isn't !

AdvantagesAlmost everything you want in one store

DisadvantagesMight not be exactly what you wanted

"...case I have experienced in Argos stores around south Yorkshire & London over the passed few years. Purchase 1 I saw on the website a cordless drill & was in a stylish green case with bright blue & orange parts that really put a smile on my face & I reserved it & picked it up. The packaging didnít really show any type of picture of the item but you donít expect to be leaving with a toaster when you ordered a TV so off I went. I got home, opened it ..." Read review

Stick to the Catalogue

AdvantagesArgos has a good range and reasonable prices

DisadvantagesThe website's not very good, delivery was slow and customer service poor

"...to survive in self-catering accommodation. Argos was naturally the first place we thought of, and a quick browse through the catalogue revealed the DeLonghi MAK 312 (a.k.a. the cheapest one) would suit our purposes at just £44.95. In fact, the flat next door had just bought one (from Argos) and it seemed perfect for our needs. Getting it home looked like a problem, but we decided two of us could lug it to the bus station and avoid the £3.95 home delivery ..." Read review
