Umm i'm not exactly sure why or when my obsession with Argos started, except that it's been a while and it shows absolutely no sign of abating....
It's my guilty pleasure to nip in on the way home or on a Saturday (on the way to/from my beloved Waitrose) and i can spend hours flicking through their laminated pages filled with wondrous bits and bobs.
I even got a card. Yup. Allowing me to invest in that mahoosive telly/wii/kitchen diner set / bed / tent / ring (no, Elizabeth Duke might be that step too far!) in one of their end of catalogue sales and pay bit by bit... amazing or what?
And if that weren't enough reason, their Simple Human dustbins and kitchen gadgets & whatnots are about half the price they are in Habitat!
AND the staff are friendly, chatty and helpful beyond the call of duty: one such lovely chap going so far as to carry my goods out of the shop, flag me a taxi and bundle me in, all with a cheeky chappy smile.
Oh and if you do happen to phone up and mention a staff member being particularly lovely to customer services (as i did) apparently they get a half day holiday as a reward! What a great company - no wonder they're so chirpy.
OH oh AND if you have to take anything back, they just swap or refund absolutely no quibble. amazing eh?!
If only everything in life were as simple as Argos.
