Argos store to open in Hawick

The Hawick News can exclusively reveal that Argos is set to open in Hawick.

It was confirmed this week that the retail giant is preparing to open up within the town’s Homebase store – part of the same Home Retail Group.

A spokesperson said yesterday: “We can confirm that a planning application has been submitted for a potential Argos concession within Homebase in Hawick at Galalaw Retail Park.

“As part of its digital transformation strategy, Argos is rolling out a number of concessions within Homebase stores of 2,000sqft max to offer customers the benefits of an Argos store where they don’t currently have one nearby.”

The company would not speculate whether the new in-store branch would create any new jobs.
