Where do I shop for Essentials?

So you are moving to a foreign country, and other than the backpack on your back, you have nothing…so how do you start to set yourself up? And where do you go?
There are a couple of great options but today, we are going to let you know about ARGOS. A handy store that has everything you need and everything you didn’t even realise you needed at really affordable prices!

Shopping at argos involves, heading to your nearest store, flicking through a catalogue, making a list of what you want, taking your order to the till, paying for it, taking your item number to the counter and collecting it.
You can also shop online, by either picking up a catalogue at an Argos store or you can view most Argos products on their website. If you shop online at Argos, you can reserve your product online to pick up in your local store same day or order for home delivery.
Shopping online with Argos is straightforward and convenient, once you've found the products you are looking for and have added them to your trolley, you'll be given the choice of ordering for home delivery or reserving for store pick-up. If you'd like some items to be delivered and some others to be reserved for you in-store, you do so by placing two different orders, selecting the relevant service for each.
For a small charge, they'll take away your old appliance when delivering your new one so you don't have the hassle of taking it to the local skip or recycling depot. This collection service is only offered through the home delivery service on the purchase of new large domestic appliances.

So what can you actually get from them?
A few examples of products on offer through the A-Z product list
Coffee machines, cookers, ovens, dishwashers, fridges, kettles, microwaves, toasters, cookware, kitchen ware, table ware, irons, ironing boards, clothes drying racks, vacuum cleaners, bedding , electric blankets, bedroom furniture, beds, mattresses, heaters , fireplaces, radiators, sofas, futons, dining tables, chairs, office furniture, clocks, radios, TV, curtains, blinds, cushions, throws, beanbags, lighting, mirrors, picture frames, rugs , mats, moving house packs, bubble wrap, storage and shelving, air conditioning, fans, dehumidifiers, watches, jewellery, video games, sports equipment, printers, laptops, mobile phones, binoculars , telescopes, camera’s, camcorders, home cinema systems, karaoke machines and equipment, camping, ski wear etc, you get the idea!

So if you need it…… Find it. Get it. Argos it!
