Inverness Argos closed indefinitely due to 'technical' fault; advice is to go to Nairn instead
ARGOS has apologised to local customers after “a technical issue” forced temporary closure of its store at Inverness Shopping Park.
The catalogue retailer’s failure to open caused puzzlement on social media with some shoppers concerned it was to shut permanently.
But the company, owned by Sainsbury’s since 2016, gave assurances it was working hard to re-open after an unspecified fault within the Eastfield Way premises it shares with mobile phone company EE.
The firm also operates an order collection service for the online retailer eBay.
A Sainsbury’s spokesman said: “Our Eastfield Way store is temporarily closed. We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause and we’re working hard to reopen as soon as possible.
“Our customers can continue to shop with us at the nearby Nairn store. The store has been closed to allow engineers to fix a technical issue.”
The store has been closed since Saturday and the spokesman was unable to when it might re-open.
The former Inverness city centre Argos branch closed in July last year, with staff relocated to the out-of-town premises.
