Everyone knows Argos. We’re the store that brought you the catalogue. We’re the store you’ve grown up with. The one that sells toys, furniture, electricals and all the rest.
But did you also know we’re now a major force in online retail? Or that we’re part of the same group as Habitat?
There’s more to Argos than you might think.

Argos is a unique multi-channel retailer. Part of the Home Retail Group, we’re one of the biggest names on the high street.
We’re still famed for our catalogue. (And understandably so: around two thirds of the UK population have one in their home at any time). But that reputation is changing fast. In recent years we’ve been making headlines for our digital transformation.
Since 2012, we’ve been moving into digital in a big way – introducing everything from apps and digital stores to Fast Track collection and home delivery.
It means customers can now order a product online and collect it from their local Argos store at a time that suits them, in as little as 60 seconds. Or have it delivered to them the same day. We’re the first retailer in the UK to offer this level of speed and convenience.
Our digital strategy is already delivering results. In 2015 we became the first UK retailer to hit £1 billion of sales through mobile devices.
And that’s just the start. With other big innovations in the pipeline, we’re set to transform the way millions of people shop. Put simply, there’s never been a more exciting time to join us.
