The day we hoped we’d never see has sadly come and gone.

The retailer started closing their doors in March after they announced that they would be leaving the Irish market.

Click and collect services stopped on Thursday, June 22nd, and now Argos’ remaining Irish stores across the country have closed.

Argos made the shocking announcement that they were set to close all of their Irish stores by June 2023, including all online activity. This decision will affect over 400 employees across the 34 Irish stores.

According to reports, staff were informed of this decision on Thursday, 19th January.

Back in November Argos announced the closure of their well-known Stephen’s Green store, following a difficult few years with the pandemic. However at the time, this was believed to be the only store closing.

Trade union Mandate, who represents the Argos workers, made this statement about the closure when it was first announced:

Today is a difficult one for Argos’s staff here in Ireland as they get the news that the company will be closing down here. Because Argos is shutting down its complete operation in Ireland this amounts to a collective redundancy which requires a 30-day consultation period and we know the company intends to honour that obligation to engage.

“We will be using this period to negotiate the best possible terms for those who are losing their jobs and we are expecting a constructive response from the company.”
