But you have only to read the comments above re. how much folks hate collecting from a RM depot.

I don't want to collect from my local Royal Mail depot either. My local Post Office is much closer and more convenient, as you'd expect with perhaps 12,000 of those, far more than there are Royal Mail depots. The Post Office costs me some walking and the Local Collect fee. The depot costs me about £10-12 a time.
Even with that it's better than some delivery services, which don't even have a depot in the same city.

I think Argos' parent company GUS has connections to Yodel, so going into Christmas this could get messy.

GUS doesn't exist anymore. I believe there did used to be a connection to the company in the pre-Yodel days, but that was a good few years ago now.
Argos and Homebase are now owned by Home Retail Group.

I thought they were Shop Direct Group now? Can't keep up.
The new head man at Yodel is a former exec of GUS (or whatever they're called). Not that I know or am that bothered but I suspect the companies are still well connected.

I actually thought it was a parcel collection thing, like Collect+. So Argos will have to find some space in their stock room to keep products from 50 eBay sellers?
