Argos launched its autumn 2012 range and new catalogue on Saturday which for the first time includes products from homewares chain Habitat, which owner Home Retail Group bought out of administration last year.

A range of 1,000 Habitat products are now advertised within the catalogue, available for home delivery or collection in selected stores.

The multichannel retailer is selling over 43,000 products online with 9,000 new products advertised in the latest book including the new kidswear range designed by Emma Bunton; an extensive to its exclusive Jessica Ennis range of exercise equipment; and new ‘Living’ and ‘Colour Match’ brands in homewares.

Argos managing director John Walden said: “We are very aware that these are difficult times with many still feeling the pinch, so with our new range launch we have focused on great value on daily essentials and the latest must-haves in areas such as technology and toys.

“Our exclusive branded ranges, including Bush, Chad Valley and Schreiber, also enable us to offer greater value for less.”
