New Argos to open at Sainsbury’s Bourne next month

A new Argos digital store is set to open at Sainsbury’s Bourne store later this year.

The store, which is set to open on August 2, will offer customers a range of popular products for immediate pickup and a further 20,000 can be ordered to collect in store within a number of hours.

An extra 20,000 products can also be ordered for home delivery. There will also be an eBay and DPD collection point.

The move comes after Sainsbury’s acquired Home Retail Group, which owns Argos and is part of its strategy to help its customers shop whenever and wherever they want.

The combination of Sainsbury’s and Argos will enable customers to shop conveniently through different online, mobile and store channels.

Nicki Thomas, store manager at Bourne said: “We are delighted to welcome Argos and its team to our supermarket.

“The new store is great for customers, who are looking for easier, more convenient ways to shop and we’re looking forward to feedback from customers about the increased range and offer.”
