Argos on Lewis?
Argos will have been exclusively mainland-based until January 2012 when a new store is opening ... in Stornoway. So this style of retailing will have some customers new to the concept of selecting from a catalogue or computer-screen, placing the order, waiting and being called, before walking out with the purchase in hand or under arm. Not that shoplifting is a major problem on the islands, but in an Argos it's not possible for customers to 'half-inch' anything! Eighteen jobs are being created. Take a look at the Stornoway Gazette account.
