Sainsbury’s recently reached an important milestone in its plan to bring Sainsbury’s and Argos closer together with the opening of its 300th Argos co-located store.
The store will be located inside Sainsbury’s Salford in Manchester and will enable customers to browse and purchase over 20,000 technology, home and toy products whilst picking up their groceries.
“We are very proud to be celebrating the opening of the 300th Argos store inside Sainsbury’s Salford,” James Brown, Commercial Director for General Merchandise & Clothing at Sainsbury’s, said. “This marks an important milestone in our plan to ensure customers can easily buy everything they need from one single, multi-brand, multi-channel business and is testament to the popularity of the model and the hard work of all our colleagues.”
Salford customers join thousands across the UK who will be able to shop for grocery and general products under one roof, but also access Argos’s market-leading Fast Track Delivery and Collection, which give customers the option to order products for same day collection in store or home delivery in as little as four hours. While 60 per cent of Argos’s total sales now start online, 85 per cent of customers choose to collect their goods in-store.
Argos is a technology-led retailer and the new store will have a [email protected] area with tablets that enable customers to purchase what they want quickly and conveniently as well as browse for products, with Argos colleagues on hand to help.
