  • Visitor Information

Cheap, catalogue-based chain store which sells almost everything. Argos is a bit of national institution and offers good deals on all sorts of household goods, from cheap furniture to electronics and computers.

Has a uniquely irritating system involving separate payment and collection of goods, which keeps prices low, but forces you to queue twice.
