A branch of catalogue superchain Argos will close at the end of next month.

Argos, in Market Place, Romford, will close its doors for good at the end of July but all is not lost, as a smaller digital store will instead be opened in Sainsbury’s in The Brewery shopping centre.

Staff from the Romford Market store will also be transferred.

The change comes after Sainsbury’s acquired Home Retail Group which owns Argos.

Manager at Sainsbury’s in Romford, Barry O’Leary, said: “We are looking forward to welcoming Argos and its team to the 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.”
