Argos outsources store cleaning

Argos has appointed services, maintenance and building group Interserve in a multi-million pound outsourcing deal to supply cleaning services to its properties.

Argos outsources store cleaning

Interserve will clean stores, windows and warehouses at Argos's 745 stores around the country for two years. This will involve

the service group transferring around 1500 staff under Transfer of Undertakings, Protection of Employment (TUPE) rules.

Tony Sanders, commercial managing director at Interserve, says, “The retail sector is perhaps more competitive than ever and we are delighted to have secured Argos as one of our key accounts under a full national portfolio. We are also pleased to now become the preferred supplier for cleaning and associated services across the Home Retail Group. We now manage around 50 million square feet of retail space as our retail team and capability goes from strength to strength.”

Argos Operational Support Manager Will Jary says, “We were impressed by Interserve's proposal which demonstrates its great attention to both cost and service quality. Interserve has great experience in TUPE transfers and sustainability which also makes it a natural choice for this contract.”
