Sainsbury’s to open Argos branch inside stores

Published on: 12th October 2016

An Argos mini-store or click-and-collect branch will soon be present in every one of the retailer’s supermarkets.

sainsburys480The plans put forward by Sainsbury’s boss Mike Coupe come after the company recently bought Argos’ parent company, Home Retail for £1.4bn. The move could create up to 1,000 jobs.

Mike Coupe commented: “Over time, we envisage that there won’t be a single Sainsbury’s shop with the exception of some very small convenience shops, where you won’t either be able to see an Argos concession or be able to click-and-collect your item”.

The retailer plans to relocate existing Argos stores within its supermarket network as part of the move.
