Shoppers will get a timely mid-winter boost when a new Argos store opens later this month inside Sainsbury’s in Market Harborough.

The new unit will replace the outlet in St Mary’s Place, which shut last March during the first Covid lockdown before being closed permanently.

Sainsbury’s, which owns Argos, say staff who worked at the standalone store will move to the new shop.

It’s due to open its doors on Friday February 19 - initially offering a click and collect service only amid Covid-19 restrictions.

A Sainsbury’s spokeswoman said: “By bringing together the much-loved brands of Sainsbury’s and Argos under the one roof, Market Harborough customers will be able to enjoy greater convenience as the new Argos will enable them to purchase thousands of technology, home and toy products whilst picking up their groceries.

“The Argos store will feature an Argos [email protected] area – when permitted, customers will be able to use the tablets to purchase what they want quickly and conveniently, as well as browse for products with Argos colleagues on hand to help.”

She added: “All colleagues who used to work from the Market Harborough Argos standalone store will work from the Argos store inside Sainsbury’s Market Harborough when it opens to customers later this month.”
