ARGOS has announced it will be closing its Newport store in Stow Hill, and re-open inside a supermarket.

The new digital store at Sainsbury’s in Albany Street will be opening on May 3, with the current Argos closing tomorrow

Argos say the new store will offer 20,000 products which can be ordered to collect in store, and an extra 20,000 which can be ordered for home delivery.

There will also be an eBay collection point so buyers can collect their Ebay purchases. The move comes after Sainsbury’s recently acquired Home Retail Group, which owns Argos.

Staff will be transferred to the new store.

The company says the move will give customers more choice across different product ranges.

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

David Mills, spokesman for Sainsbury’s, said: “We are really thrilled to welcome Argos and its team to our Newport supermarket.

"The new store is great news for customers, who are looking for easier, more convenient ways to shop. We’re looking forward to offering them an increased range of products at great value, all under one roof.”
