This is the full list of name=Argos, shop=*

Catalogue by far the most popular, but I wondering if there any 
specialised Argos outlets selling just furniture or electrical?

catalogue,152
department_store,90
<No shop tag>,60
yes,55
variety_store,39
general,21
supermarket,8
gift,5
convenience,4
houseware,4
catalog,2
catalogue_store,2
electronics,2
general_store,2
hifi,2
furniture,1
general_retailer,1
hardware,1
household,1
retailer,1
outpost,1

Cheers
