    All these sofa and furniture adverts guaranteeing Xmas delivery,what a load of bullshine overstating the importance of having it by 1 day that is far too commercialised now.
    I find it offensive that these marketing people think that’s a reason to buy now,not in January when some things are heavily discounted.

    It must work otherwise the fuckers wouldn't advertise in that way. Never underestimate the shallowness, poor reasoning and gullibility of humans..

    Listen, Can you smell something?
    But I need a new sofa just in time for Christmas. NEEEED. And an occasional table in oak.

    That f******g real oak furniture advert is insulting,the acting is crap and for that reason I would never step foot into one of their stores,it’s probably overpriced crap to pay for their shite adverts

    Actually we ordered a new leather sofa yesterday, 13 weeks delivery, would have loved it before Xmas when we have guests for 2 days (possibly 3)
    So disagree with you I suppose.:)

    Fair point,but sort of backing up what I was saying in a way,you will probably manage ok by waiting for it to be delivered when it’s ready as you know approximately when you order it that they are mostly made to order.

    Most people can work it out for themselves and there are varying factors involved like when you can afford it etc..and when a room has been decorated first so stop making these shite adverts

    Well not really backing you up, I havent seen the adds as Im in Oz but had I seen somewhere advertising this I might've dealt with them.
    If a company has a benefit over competitors I see no harm in advertising that fact.

    Its our fault for leaving it too late but would've loved to get it for Xmas.
