Sainsbury’s has upgraded 29 more Argos stores to self-service digital formats in the first quarter of 2019, with 206 now offering its Pay@Browse technology. Customers can pay at the same tablet they use to browse the retailer’s catalogue’s 20,000 products, before picking up their order at collection pods.

Argos says that this frees up store colleagues to help people at the Pay@Browse areas and bring products to the collection pods. These stores also include tills for those preferring to pay with cash or cards.
