Argos has revealed the location of its latest closures across the UK - is your local branch affected?

Argos, which is now owned by Sainsbury's, has continued its move away from the high street, with plan to close 100 stores across the UK in 2023/24 in favour of instead opening in supermarkets.

In the last 12 month, 45 branches have been closed and 25 opened within Sainsbury's stores.

Two Argos branches - Grimsby Alexandria Argos and Scunthorpe Argos - are being relocated in August, according to the Sun.

A new branch is also set to open in Sainsbury's Hessle on August 9.
