What Twitter account says they are still open online?

I don't think we'll see Argos Ireland operate for a few weeks at least. Their Irish web site was not geared for deliveries and lagged behind the UK version. So, with the Argos UK stores also largely closed - their focus will be keeping their online operations up and running.

Text received last night, luckily I can collected my order yesterday

Following government advice, Argos stores are now closed. This means we have had to cancel your reservation. We are working to get our website and delivery services open as usual. We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your support and understanding.

Home delivery is still available according to argos.ie

Think that's all just bulky items like furniture and white goods, right?

I picked up my item in Clonmel yesterday and the young man who served me said they would be closed soon - I’d say they are all closed, they are no essential businesses in relation to health, only us wanting to keep busy at home.

Web site is up, but you can't order anything. Not even bulky items.

I would have thought that because they offer some diy/hardware stuff they may have fallen under the exceptions.

There's a very short notice on their website about stores being closed but online orders can be processed. However when you click on it you are redirected to the UK site and then get the following message. Its as clear as muck whether that applies to Ireland or not

Quote:
Following the Government's announcement, we have temporarily closed all our stores. This also includes our in-store reservation and pick-up options. You can still order selected items online, for home delivery.

Here to help
Our customer service operators are available on 1800 535 091 (landline) or 015245387 (mobile). Lines are open 8am-8pm Monday-Friday, 9am-6pm Saturday & Sunday.

Argos have never supported the Irish website properly.
You'd always have to go on to the UK site to get better pictures. Even the way they do offers seemed to be better laid out on the UK site.

Like a lot of UK businesses, they seem to forget about their Irish stores or that Ireland is a different country with different laws etc.
