Argos brings used games to all stores

Publish date:

All Argos stores will offer a video game trade-in service from Saturday July 24th.

The pre-owned offer coincides with the launch of the firm's 74th Argos catalogue.

Customers will have the chance to trade in around 250 different titles for Argos gift cards that can be spent on any product available from the chain. The service will be advertised within the catalogue, which has a circulation of 18m.

The catalogue specialist began trailing pre-owned in various stores in the North East at the beginning of March.

Argos said gamers ‘responded favourably to the online trade-in price list' – which the likes of GAME, Gamestation and HMV do not do.
