Supermarket chain Sainsbury’s has confirmed the opening of an Argos outlet at its Carrick store.

The new digital store will open in April and will bring extra choice and convenience to customers.

It will offer thousands of popular products for immediate collection, 20,000 products can also be ordered to collect in store within hours and 20,000 extra products can be ordered for home delivery.

There will also be an eBay collection point so buyers can either collect their ebay purchases or arrange for Argos to deliver them.

The move comes after Sainsbury’s recently acquired Home Retail Group, which owns Argos and it 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. It will also give customers more choice across different product ranges, creating the United Kingdom’s largest non-food retailer.

Eddie Gowdy, manager at Sainsbury’s Carrickfergus, said: “We are really thrilled to welcome Argos and its team to our store.

“The new shop 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.”
