Argos made a significant innovation 15 years ago, when they launched the very first click & collect service. Most of the leading brands have since adopted the system. And if some online retailers, like Amazon, have launched a same-day delivery service, it's usually only available in the biggest cities. That where Argos still innovates: their same-day delivery service, called Fast Track, is available for online purchases nationwide.
A faster delivery can make the difference between two retailers and Argos is more than aware of that fact, especially a few weeks away from Black Friday and the Christmas season. Nearly 20,000 items are clearly marked Fast Track eligible, thanks to the company's improved stocking, distribution and digital systems in their network of 800 stores across the country.
Fast Track Delivery items are delivered 7 days a week, 364 days a year (the 365th day being Christmas) for an additional cost of £3.95. You can pick the most suitable delivery slot between four options: 7am-10am, 10am-1pm, 2pm-6pm and 7pm-10pm. A product purchased online by 6pm will be delivered by 10pm the same day.
If not interested by the Fast Track Delivery, you can choose a Fast Track Collection: your item will be available in your local Argos store 60 seconds after your completed your online order, and it's free. Launched a few days ago by Olympic sprinter Iwan Thomas, Argo's Fast Track services have allowed the creation of 3,300 new jobs.
