they are having IT problems. Were it p[lanned maintenance etc they would probably say so, and would have a rough idea when it would be back up.

Could it relate to this.

Sainsbury's has suspended its online grocery service.

The commpany produces around 80% of the profit made by the Home Retail Group of which it is part, and easily outperforms other group businesses - like Homebase.

There's possibly a technical glitch - the site is very heavily used, producing about a quarter of all Argos sales.

The Sainsbury online shopping site suffered a major database glitch, and had to be taken offline for repair.

That made me smile - Argos has just opened a second big branch in my town, which has a population of around 80,000; the original branch is always busy whatever the day of the week.

As the FE points out, it's a very successful business with excellent customer after sales service.

"the FE points out, it's a very successful business with excellent customer after sales service".

I have used them several times over the years and always found their policy on returning good back to the shop to be very good. I never had any problem with them and they always accepted returned goods without any questions asked.

Mind you if you look at the sale items.It says looking for a good deal for Xmas.So looks like they will be here for a while yet.
