Advantages: Almost everything is available of pretty good quality
Disadvantages: not all the brands are available, lacking in some departments such as cosmetics
Argos is my go to shop for almost everything. Their prices are reasonable and pretty affordable and they do have, 80 percent of the time, everything I need. From electrical, to gifts, jewelery and watches, I find myself shopping from there all the time just because it is such a convenient place. Their service is really efficient, and I love the fact that I can view a product before actually paying for it. This gives me a chance to scrutinize the product I am looking to buy. I have to say, the staff members are very clued up about most of the products and are very helpful in my decision making. Sometimes they can be a little pushy, but usually I do get told the cons as well as the pros about a certain item.
I don't really shop at argos online, I prefer to go into the shop and see what I am buying just so that if I am not 100% satisfied, I can return it there and then without the hassle of making phone calls to customer services or carrying things to and fro the shop. I have purchased dishes, kitchen appliances, lamps, pillows and duvets and most of them are still going strong. If you want something temporary yet still chic looking, for around the house, argos has things that are very durable and don't look cheap at all. I haven't ever felt that I'm missing out on quality just because I cant afford the expensve things. Infact, quite the opposite. I feel as if there is no need to buy such expensive things when cheaper ones do the exact same thing. Cosmetically, they may be plain and boring but as long as you keep your things clean and tidy, they always look good.
Over all I've been very happy with 98 percent of my purchases, it's the place to shop for anything other than food and makeup for me! I'd recommend it to anyone and everyone. I do however wish they would improve their makeup collection and bring in some really famous drugstore brands. I really could go on and on, but the bottom line is, it's a one stop shop!
Summary: For everything other than food and makeup, argos is my number one go to
