6 reviews of Argos in English
Argos is a unique shopping experience, it’s unlike other shops. The Ealing branch extends this peculiarity by making you enter by escalator from the main shopping level and then forcing you to take a stroll around the upper level when you leave. Once inside there are three sections to be negotiated: choosing, paying and collecting. When it’s busy you may have to walk up and down waiting to pounce on a vacant catalogue. I must admit it sometimes feels as though I’m in a big game where I have to collect a token to progress to the next level. Having said that they do stock a huge range of products and their prices are very good, which is why I keep going back.
The last few reviews are confusing or a little misleading!
There are 2 good sized passenger lifts next to the main stairs, these lifts go to all floors(inc the multi-storey car park).
Indeed it is a busy store, it serves the area between Southall and Hammersmith.
The Ealing branch is an Argos Extra store, which means it carries 2,500 extra product lines. Making it easier to collect items that may require ordering and waiting for, when purchased at other stores.
As for them not having sought after/required products? With access to the internet (or just a phone) you don’t have to visit the store to find out if they have what you want. You can do everything on line(or with a catalogue and phone), check for products, buy the product and arrange for it to be delivered (£5.95 per order).
It may not be the best, but its been serving the people of Ealing Broadway for over 10yrs.
A strange design for a shop that sells large bulky items as there is only an escalator leading up a narrow corridor to the shop on the first floor, meaning that customers are expected to walk down the stair case used for the multi-storey car park outside with their items.
They have never had any of our items in stock when we have been. The queues are often long as well.
The Argos in Ealing Broadway is one of the most poorly designed shops I’ve ever seen. The entrance and exit are in completely different places, including an escalator that rarely works.
The service has always been slow, and I’ve noticed a tendency to skip numbers.
So the typical Argos fare, but with the addition of a terribly designed shop floor. There’s a few things that you might want to buy, and Argos has always been useful for the odd piece of furniture or living room trinket. There’s always a use for Argos, whether you like its dodgy system or not.
Where oh where is the down escalator? its all very well having an Up escalator but what happens when you buy a huge cumbersome item and then have to walk down the stairs. Do they not think! A bit small and pokey but it does the job I suppose.
They have an entrance on the lower level, which is just an escalator in a thin corridor. This makes it feel a bit like you are going to a magic place. I think Bill Bailey would like Ealing’s Argos for this reason. Maybe he based his routine on it? He did also mention Shepherd’s Bush Market, which isn’t a million miles away.
You leave through a different set of doors, which is a bit weird. I bought a toaster from there once, but standard bread from tesco did not fit into it. It was the worst invention designed for sliced bread since sliced bread. These days I use the grill.
