Argos in Foregate Street Chester is to close after many years

Chester's city centre branch of Argos is to close before the end of the year - to relocate to a supermarket.

A spokesperson for Sainsbury's told The Chronicle that the Foregate Street Argos branch will be shutting its doors in December so the store can move to Sainsbury's in Caldy Valley Road.

The supermarket bought Argos in a £1.4bn takeover last year, and dozens of Argos outlets all over the country have been axed in the past 12 months, including one at Cheshire Oaks which moved into Sainsbury's.
