    Acton Gate call center (Argos)

    Just found out the call center at Acton Gate will be closing down sometime in the new year. Not a total suprise as it was going to close in 2026 anyway. The Wife has been there 18 years & i'd imagine quite a few fellow Staffordians have worked there over the years.
