Argos customers were greeted by a notice saying the site was down today

But the move prevents parents from stocking up on toys and other gifts just two weeks before Christmas.

The site outage was scheduled, but it looks like it’s been going on longer than planned.

Argos yesterday said the site would be down between 1am and 6am this morning.

However, it only worked again around 8:30 this morning.

The retailer said yesterday: “Our website will be down from 1am, sorry for any inconvenience.

“We’re working on some updates and we’ll be back up and running at 6am. See you soon!”

Customers took to Twitter to vent their frustrations about the delay.

One shopper said: “Any news when it’ll be back up and running, I’m hoping to be ordering and paying for my Christmas items now.”

Another wrote: Please give any ideas when you will reopen for online shopping? 8:08 am and still waiting to get your daughter’s toys for Christmas but your website is still offline..? “

“Congratulations to Argos for getting through another five-hour outage of almost two hours and still going,” a third customer added.

The Sun has reached out to Argos for comment.

Other retailers have experienced unplanned shutdowns during the busy shopping times, including Footasylum, crashed on Black Friday.
