The retailer has confirmed its Smithfield Street shop in Oswestry will shut.

The firm said it will be opening a new store inside Sainsbury's in Black Gate Street in the town this summer.

In a statement the company said that the staff at the Smithfield Street store were being offered jobs at the Sainsbury's store.

A spokesman said: “This summer a brand new Argos store will open inside Sainsbury’s Oswestry.

"By bringing together the much-loved brands of Sainsbury’s and Argos under the one roof, our customers will be able to enjoy greater convenience as the new Argos will enable them to purchase thousands of technology, home and toy products while picking up their groceries.

"As a result of this our Oswestry Argos store will be closing and colleagues have been offered opportunities to redeploy to alternative roles within Sainsbury's."

The move is part of Argos' plans to close around 420 stores then open 350 stores and collection points in supermarkets and convenience stores by March 2024
