As for this week, some Argos stores are open. Like most of our fave high street stores, after being closed for almost three months, Argos reopened its doors yesterday, with more stores due to open over the next weeks. Those stores open are still only offering Click and Collect, so you will have to place your orders online before you go into store. But this does mean you will be able to pick up your pieces quicker as you aren't waiting on those unpredictable delivery times.
Wondering which Argos stores are open? Well, they have just reopened 145 stand-alone stores, but remember you can find Argos concessions in Sainsbury's as well as having your orders delivered there, if that's going to be easier for you. You can use the Store Finder tool over on the Argos site to see if your local store has been reopened. There will obviously be social distancing measures in place so be prepared for queues and Argos have advised there may be a slightly longer wait before you can collect your order.
So what are you desperate to get ordering at Argos? We have rounded up the top buys we are ordering now Argos is open so keep on scrolling for some shopping inspiration and head over to our deals hub page for all the massive sales happening right now.

1. Some stylish Argos garden furniture
We have been raving about Argos garden furniture throughout the whole of lockdown, and now Argos has reopened is so much easier and quicker to get your hands on it. We love this Ipanema set (opens in new tab), so cheap and you get so much for your money. Add some cushions to make it more comfy and relaxed and that's your new garden set up sorted for under £200.

2. A gorgeous Argos sun lounger
Argos have been smashing the sun loungers this summer. Their bargain £28 foldable loungers (opens in new tab) have taken Instagram by storm. They are that mix between slightly tacky and totally kitsch and amazing and we personally love them. If you are after something more substantial though, the Pascal sun lounger (opens in new tab) is a total classic and would add a very chic element to your garden.

4. A new duvet set
Because it just feels nice doesn't it, new sheets? And we are all for creating a staycation feel at home and nice bedding is a massive part of that. Argos have bedding to suit all styles and budgets, but this Helena Springfield White Woven Spot Bedding Set (opens in new tab) is just beautiful! White bedding with a touch of texture is our dream bedding (and everyone else on Instagram's it would seem).
5. A new rug for a summer refresh
How cute is this rug (opens in new tab)? And it's only 40 quid. We think the would look really cool as an outdoor rug too, with some rattan furniture, fairy lights, lanterns, maybe a little at-home bar over in the corner. Yes please.
