Terry Duddy, Chief Executive of Home Retail Group, outlined the plans for a new-look Argos business:
We have also concluded a comprehensive business review of Argos which highlighted a clear opportunity to transform the business through increased investment in digital technologies.
The transformation plan aims to deliver growth by repositioning Argos as a digitally-led business from a catalogue-led business, leading the market growth of digital commerce through online, mobile and tablet, and offering customers more products with the fastest, most convenient fulfilment options.
This plan provides the right approach for Argos to achieve a long-term sustainable performance and profit recovery.
