Argos has launched its first ever Isle of Man delivery service, bringing 30,000 products direct to the doors of the 39,645 homes on the island.
Available on a wide range of items from Bose headphones and Lego toys to Dyson vacuum cleaners and televisions, and up to a maximum weight of 30kg per item, orders will be delivered in just two days at the standard UK delivery cost of £3.95.
Local customers shopping the Argos website (argos.co.uk) now have the option to input their IM postcode to check availability before adding products to their trolley, checking out and making payment.
Orders are delivered by Yodel through its local delivery partners, including Isle of Man Post Office.
Matt Hawkins, divisional manager west at Argos, said: "We're so pleased to launch this new delivery service for residents of the Isle of Man. For the first time ever, they can shop an extensive range of over 30,000 products from the comfort of their home and receive their order direct to the door. And what's more, delivery is at the standard UK cost of just £3.95.
"As a business we are continually looking at how to bring more affordable and convenient ways to shop to our customers, and this new delivery service to the Isle of Man does just that. We hope that our customers on the island are as excited as we are."
