OSWESTRY’S Argos store is set to close this summer as it moves under the same roof as one of the town’s supermarkets.

The store in Smithfield Street will close this summer and will reopen inside the town’s Sainsbury’s supermarket in Black Gate Street.

It is one of more than 400 Argos stores nationwide which are set to close as the catalogue retailer plans to open 350 more Argos stores as Sainsbury’s and Argos collection points in supermarkets and convenience stores by March 2024.

An Argos spokesman confirmed the store in Oswestry will be closing.

They said: “This summer a brand new Argos store will open inside Sainsbury’s Oswestry.

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

“As a result of this our Oswestry Argos store will be closing and colleagues have been offered opportunities to redeploy to alternative roles within Sainsbury’s.”
