The Argos catalogue will appeal more than ever to the cost-conscious consumer looking to purchase affordable and energy saving products. Argos' strong value credentials are reinforced through 750-plus eye-catching catalogue WOW deals. An additional 50 Argos Value Range products have been introduced to increase the range to over 350 across kitchen gadgets, homewares and small consumer electronics. The new Argos catalogue has over 70 Energy Saving Trust recommended products from televisions to tumble dryers.
12 months ago heralded a new era for Argos as it unveiled a new logo and brand strategy. The evolution continues with a fresh, confident and modern catalogue cover that reflects the variety and choice of products that you get when shopping with Argos. The contemporary theme continues inside the catalogue with the inclusion of more creative lifestyle images and product page arrangements, generating strong visual support for existing lines and new product ranges from additional beauty products to exclusive outdoor living brands. Within technology, the Apple iPad makes its first appearance, along with an extended range of 3D TVs and the new Nintendo 3DS which launches at the end of March.
Over 15,000 products are available in store and can be reserved immediately for collection on the UK's most visited high street website through Check & Reserve and the mobile Argos iPhone app.
Argos managing director, Sara Weller commented: "The launch of our new catalogue always brings big opportunities for our business. The 75th Argos catalogue sees us really delivering on our commitment to offer value and choice, taking great strides to ensure the catalogue remains an inspirationally convenient way to shop."
