Argos opens new digital store within Homebase in East Grinstead

Homebase sign angled

ARGOS has created 19 extra jobs in East Grinstead thanks to its new digital store which opened inside Homebase on Friday.

The new store offers East Grinstead shoppers the speed and convenience of online shopping combined with friendly in-store service.

The fully Wi-Fi enabled ‘paperless’ store has tables of tablets replacing Argos’ traditional laminated catalogues, paper slips and pencils.

Customers can use the tablets to browse for products, videos, photography and customer reviews online, before adding items to their online shopping trolley. Staff will be on hand to provide personal service.

Their new digital outlets equip Argos for the online revolution, as shoppers increasingly browse and buy online via PCs, tablets and other mobile devices, while still wanting the immediacy of a local store to pick up their purchases.

Up to 20,000 products – from technology to toys – will be available for same or next day delivery from the new Argos. Customers can also benefit from new services such as the ability to browse and pay for goods online at home or on the move for speedy collection from a Fast Track collection point.
