Argos (UK)

Argos is a British catalogue retailer operating in the United Kingdom and Ireland, and a subsidiary of Sainsbury's. The company trades both through physical stores and online, with over 750 stores and 800 million website visits a year, making it one of the largest high street retailers online in the United Kingdom.

Argos was established in 1973, by Richard Tompkins, the founder of the Green Shield Stamps scheme, who re-branded the existing Green Shield Stamps catalogue shops as Argos, before opening new Argos branded stores later in the year. BAT Industries purchased the company in 1979, and in 1990, it was listed on the London Stock Exchange, where it became a constituent of the FTSE 100 Index.

On the 2nd September 2016, Sainsbury's had completed the acquisition of Home Retail Group, which makes Sainsburys one of the largest retailers in the UK. The newly formed business will be known as Sainsburys Argos and will be run by a separate chief executive to Mike Coupe (CEO of J Sainsbury Plc).
