The new Argos catalogue has hit stores for autumn/winter 2011, so we’ve been taking a look at the products and deals it has to offer.
The 76th Argos catalogue, out now, has ‘frozen or lowered’ prices on 10,000 items and features 8,000 new products – taking the total number of listed items to more than 22,000.
Argos is continuing with its ‘Wow’ deals – products that are either low price or come with free gifts or accessories – as well as its own brand Value range of kitchen gadgets and homewares.
In our kitchen appliance section you’ll find reviews of numerous Argos products we’ve tested.
