Sainsbury’s uses ‘loophole’ to keep Argos open
Sainsbury's has been accused of exploiting a loophole to keep Argos outlets open during the UK lockdown. As supermarkets are an exception, Argos concessions within Sainsbury's shops remain open. "Another Argos employee tweeted:"Argos is making us standalone store workers go to Argos in Sainsbury's stores which are still open or work in the delivery hub or we DON'T GET PAID. "For me this means public transport, further increasing my risk." There are now 300 Argos concessions inside Sainsbury's stores and these remain open on a click-and-collect basis. "While our Argos stores in Sainsbury's supermarkets are still open, we've temporarily closed our in-store pay points," said a statement on the Argos website.
