ARGOS is looking to employ an additional 10,000 seasonal workers this Christmas, including hundreds more in Devon.
The company, which already employs 30,000 staff across the UK, will be looking to create 130 jobs in Devon.
It has two stores in Barnstaple where extra vacancies will be available.
Contracts will be for three months with the potential for some of these to become permanent.
John Walden, Argos managing director, said: "As we approach our busiest shopping period of the year, we need the extra support in our stores from enthusiastic colleagues to ensure that we continue to deliver brilliant customer service to the millions that shop with us at this time of year.
"We are looking for people who are customer focussed, passionate and enthusiastic to join our teams.
"Argos has been a traditional part of the UK Christmas for 40 years. Our ability to deliver a choice of 29,000 products for the whole family within easy reach is why millions of people visit our stores over the festive period."
