Founded in 1973, Argos was the pioneer of catalogue retailing in the UK .
After nearly six years as a private company they were acquired by B.A.T. Industries Limited in 1979, and then demerged in 1990. Argos became a limited company again until it was acquired by GUS plc in 1998.
Argos is now part of the Argos Retail Group, owned by GUS plc.
Argos, launched in 1973, has almost 500 stores throughout the UK and Republic of Ireland. Approximately 98% of the UK population live within 10 miles of an Argos store.
