Argos warns shoppers about possible Brexit price rises

Argos's Christmas catalogue carries a warning of possible price rises because of Brexit

General merchandise giant Argos has cautioned customers that Brexit uncertainty may lead to higher prices.

Argos, owned by Sainsbury’s, flagged the possibility on the first page of its Christmas catalogue.

Argos told customers: “At the time of printing we intend to maintain our prices at or below the printed price, however, given the uncertainty around the UK leaving the EU we reserve the right to change our prices.”

Shoppers were advised to check prices online before visiting a store to buy an item.
