Argos is the largest general-goods retailer in the United Kingdom and Ireland with over 800 stores. It is unique amongst major retailers in the UK in that it is a catalogue merchant.

It primarily displays goods by catalogue, from which customers make their selections to purchase, pay, and then collect the items from an in-store collection desk or have the item delivered to their home, similar to defunct US retailer Montgomery Ward. Together with sister company Homebase, it today forms part of the Home Retail Group.
