Argos has this week announced that they will be opening digital stores within Sainsbury’s supermarkets throughout the UK this year offering a range of digital goods for customers to purchase.
In total Argos will be opening 10 new digital stores bringing extra choice and convenience to Sainsbury’s shoppers and providing any complimentary product range that will be available to customers by the summer months of this year.
John Walden, Chief Executive of Home Retail Group, said:
“Our new distribution model allows us to provide customers in any Argos location with a choice of around 20,000 lines within hours, regardless of the size or stocking capacity of the store. This strategic capability has opened up options for a variety of new Argos stores and formats, and the possibility that we can now cost-effectively reach more customers and neighbourhoods with an Argos presence. I look forward to the results of the 10 store programme with Sainsbury’s and to understanding the full potential of this exciting opportunity.”
Mike Coupe, Chief Executive of Sainsbury’s, said:
“These 10 Argos stores will complement our supermarket offer, giving customers the opportunity to shop for an extended range of non-food items. They will bring something new and different to our customers, and fit well with our strategy of making our supermarkets more convenient. As well as looking at carefully selected partners, we continue to roll out our ranges of own brand clothing and general merchandise in our supermarkets to give customers even more choice and value.”
