Yes it is, it says on their me page

"Who Are We?

Clearance Bargains is a trading name, and the official clearance operation, for Argos Ltd.

The Clearance Bargains operation is fully owned and managed by Argos, but as the shopping experience and product availability is very different from our parent stores, we trade under the Clearance Bargains brand in order to minimise confusion"


They would have been shutdown as soon as they opened if they were claiming this and it wasnt genuine

Whoever they are they're doing well!

yeah why settle for 1 way to P off people when they can use lots

Banned

A lot of companies use ebay, I think even Comet does or used to... Its a good way for them to sell stock that they cant really do in their stores, e.g stuff where the boxes are damaged, returns

The prices of their refurbished Ds Lite look pretty good
video-games.shop.ebay.co.uk/ite…282

Theyre probably not really refurbished though probably just customer returns with damaged boxes, etc

theres a one where i live sells all of argos old stock off its great get some fab bargains

Clearance bargains is owned by Argos. The receipts also have argos head office info on them. They stock end of catalogue goods at low prices. About a month ago I ought a tv with dvd and vcr combi for £40 (£150 in catalogue), usually have good deals on lcd tvs etc and tents and furniture. Also have phones and other electrical goods. Would highly recommend visiting the shop if near you especially at xmas time for toys etc.
