Welcome to Argos, part of Home Retail Group.
Home Retail Group is the market leader in the home and general merchandise market.
More information on Home Retail Group can be found on its corporate website, www.homeretailgroup.com (this is a separate website and will open a new window), including sections on investor relations, media centre, corporate responsibility and careers.
We are a unique multi–channel retailer recognised for choice, value and convenience. We sell general merchandise and products for the home from over 700 stores throughout the UK and Republic of Ireland, online and over the telephone. In the last financial year, our sales were £4.3 billion and we employ some 33,000 people across the business.
We serve over 130 million customers a year through our stores and take 26% of sales through the internet channel alone. Four million customer orders either online or over the phone. On average, 18 million UK households, or around two thirds of the population, have our Argos catalogue at home at any time. We intend to open approximately 20 stores this financial year. This website was the most visited high street retail website in the UK in 2008.
Details of our corporate responsibility policy can be found on www.thebasisofgoodbusiness.com (this is a separate website and will open a new window)
The site includes information on:
- 'Keeping clean and green' – how we deal with environmental issues such as waste management and energy consumption
- 'Shopping for tomorrow' – we are extending our product range to help you make more responsible choices, conserve resources and save money
- 'Sourcing with care' – we provide details of our timber sourcing policy; chemical strategy and ethical trading conditions in our supply chain
- 'Being a good neighbour' – how we support the local and national communities in which we operate
These are just some of the practical ways in which we try to be socially, ethically and environmentally responsible.
