    In stock but keep checking

    I decided I would like a Wii for Christmas, without realising the demand.
    I spotted on a forum that argos are getting units shipped daily. So on the off chance when to my local argos. The salesperson advised me they had 2 left at the warehouse and reserved 1 for me. Just picked it up 2 hours ago.

    She advised me that argos get deliveries around 6pm at night every day and they dont make it to the website as they get reserved very quickly. If you have the time go every day to a late opening argos store a check you never know!!!

    I also got my Wii delivered by Argos. For some reason, they always seem to have a large number of Wii consoles.

    yup, they will be on ebay for sure..so it will still be available for people for christmas, if your an ebay shopper that is. the reason why they are sold out in stores are because people try and resell them for a quick buck. keep trying hoost.
