Clearance Sale Starts Tomorrow in-store @ Argos

41
Found 8th Jul 2008
Just been into Argos in Birchwood, Warrington. They had many items with clearance labels on them with no price. When I asked the lady stacking the shelves she said that the clearance sale was starting tomorrow. She also mentioned that it would be national as new season stock would be arriving soon.

You sure? They normally have a "Clearance Catalogue" available all the time.

There is a clearance advertised online at the moment on their home page as well:

argos.co.uk/web…fz1

Think the Catalogue clearance sale is already ON, weeks / months ago :thinking:

Since the catalogues are printed in advance, you often find their prices are a fair bit higher than other stores for electronic goods. The clearance sale brings them down to about the right price.

Was quoted in the news that a new catalogue is due out hence why staff at 4 of the 15 distribution outlets of Argos have voted to go on strike :thumbsup:

Thats not the reason these people are going on strike lol

The new catalogue is out at the end of this month. 26th i think.

The clearance section of the website should be updated on this date aswell.

80% of items sold at Argos are on promotion....i.e. cheaper than the catalogue price!!! Its a scam really. People think they are savings 20% on stuff only to find out its been at that price for 50weeks of the year.

Clearance isnt on all year long, the are 2 clearance sales per year, january at the launch of the summer cat and july at the launch of the xmas catalogue.

The clearance officially starts on the 26th July, the same day as the cat launch (was a allowed to tell people that :thinking:)

The clearance that is online is showing is xmas stock clearance, and as such most of it will be OOS everywhere (should be)

Hope this helps. :thumbsup:

Also the second phase of the end of catologue sale starts tomorrow with new sale items added. I have to be honest, most items are on sale throughout the year (there is always promotions on) but cat clearance is the time to buy, things that arnt being carried over to the next catalogue will be the cheapest they have ever been.

There are only 18 things in this sale!!!!

COLD

Why vote cold? The OP isnt referring to the 'mega deals' sale that is currently on, he is giving the heads up on the end of catalogue clearance sale, please read before voting in future.

What pray do I ask does Occupational Overuse Syndrome have to do with Argos :?:?:?;-);-)

OOS = Out of Stock

I did read it - but that was where the link went.

Please stand on one leg and hop round the room twice before voting in future. :-D

A people are a bit dopey?

Its starting tomorrow. Ive been there myself as they were bringing out the sings and placing items like MP3/mobiles/Sat Navs on display (but turned around so you couldnt see the price)

I did catch a glimpse though - some good deals

Yh they are gettin new lines in, alot of old stock is goin as not room for all of it. They call it re-bin i have been doin delivery all week, some nice things i seen. dunno if its new or old but there was this remote control what looked like a phone, it slides.

Yes some people are on less than £17k BUT if youre single £17k wont get you anywhere these days so Im all for them striking. Not that this thread is for that lol

yes sale starts tommorow and catalogue comes out sales week 29 which is around 24th of this month. I have the leaflet already with tommorows sale items if people want i can post them at 12 o clock.

Also i have seen a sneak peek of what the front cover of the new catalogue looks like but im afraid im not aloud to say anything more than that.

wtf do you guys buy that makes it hard to live on £17,000 a year? my girlfriend works in central London and only earns around £12,000 p/a and she lives well and saves half off her wages.

If you don't pay rent (living with parents) and only have a little D/D every month, 17k is f*&king amazing... all the staff in Argos are either kids (thugs) or old fat adults, don't see why then need to earn more, they don't even do much, they have a conveyor belt, trolleys and the place where they put items to give to customers are 50cm's behind them.

Stupid Union sh*7ts... some people don't know how to be great full like all those idiot train people that go on strike because they are not happy. f*King sack them and hire new people...

you obviously have not worked at argos before then there is a lot more to argos than any customer would know it is a lot harder than you think. All you see are those few things you have mentioned what about the things you dont see? We sell thousands of items and they are all in fairly small warehouses which dont organise themselves and get deliveries 6 days a week which are usually about 750+ per day. The list goes on and on.

Init, he dont know what he is chattin. Actually they dont all have convayor belts, like the store where i work in, but the smalls ones do. Milton Keynes store is pretty big in know in the back, we have 2 stockrooms and we get rushed off our feet the tickets come out. Isnt as easy as it looks, delivery can be a pain in the ass sometimes.

:-D hope that was a sarcastic comment and you dont actually talk like that:?

Was in today.

All clearance items I could find can be bought brand new on the internet for cheaper and that includes postage!

They had ex-display LCD's for more than you can get them brand new from these forums!

Voted cold.

So has this started yet or is it when the new catalogue comes out on the 26th July?

Might be a silly question, but presume all sale stuff is in store and not online

cant really work out whether it starts tommorrow or its started already

Speaking of sales... don't forget to checkout the gameplay sale tomorrow afternoon shop.gameplay.co.uk/web…ink

There is the small possibiility that some sale items will be online as argos do have some items that are web exclusive but not many.

But has the sale started yet or not?
