However, Argos concessions within Sainsbury’s supermarkets do remain open and you can find you nearest store here.
The opening times for these stores remain the same at the moment.
And you can still order products on Argos’s website – with the retailer promising fast delivery to help you buy “quickly and easily”.
Argos said it “strongly advised” customers to order items online for home delivery, or to collect whilst doing essential food shopping at Sainsbury’s, rather than to order when you get to the store.
“We will share more details about how we will continue to serve you as soon as possible. For now, thank you for your support and understanding,” it said.
Argos' returns policy remains unchanged: you still have 30 days to return something if you do not want it or if it is faulty, and you can take your item to any Sainsbury's concession store.
