The brands shaping the future of retail

One of the UK’s leading home and general merchandise retailers – with sales last year of over £4.2 billion, around 180 million transactions and a workforce of some 30,000 – we’re the driving force of a business that includes two of the best-known names in retail: Argos and Habitat.

From our Avebury HQ, in Milton Keynes, we’re providing the energy and ideas to help each brand evolve so that they become (and remain) leaders of the digital retail revolution.


Argos is always eager to show off its latest innovations – be it a new digital concept or an innovative delivery system. But then, it’s always been a very different kind of retailer. Its mission? To ensure our millions of customers can find what they want, exactly where and when they want it.
