Good store layouts - that change weekly

Advantages: Request a fabric swatch, prices displayed are not what you pay.
Disadvantages: Cheap leather sofas, stalker type staff or invisible, no weekend deliveries
Ironically my name is not "luv" or "shug" or "duck", yet the Salesperson in SCS called me this with such increasing regularity it began to grate. We had only walked in there and sat on a sofa and she pounced on us from her concealed vantage point.
What can I saw about SCS - look carefully around the store - the good suites you will pay more for, but they much along the lines of MFI never truly display the price you pay and therefore it can be affordable. The protective coating for the suites at £40 a seat (so thats £120 for a 3 seater sofa) can rack up abit extra and this is obviously where the commission lies. Alot of their leather suites look quite cheap - but these personally aren't my bag so I'm not so fussed.
The stores are nicely laid out - but certainly at my local SCS every Friday they alter the arrangement of the sofas - I'm not sure if this is because of any great sales process - more it just gives them something to do on a Friday.
We did end up calling into the SCS at Wednesbury and unlike the Stafford store there were no reptillian sale personnel waiting to pounce, however it was that quiet you wondered if anybody was working that day.
The delivery times of the sofas range from about 6 - 8 weeks as they are all made to order and there are a range of fabric colours to choose from for each suite. You can also request a swatch when you order the suite to save you having to carry around a cushion when you choose your curtains.
SCS do not deliver on a Saturday (or Sunday) which means a day or half day off work to wait. There is also no mention of them offerring to take away your old sofa or moving out into the garage when they arrive. Little useful bits of information that would help.
Summary: Just be watchful about what you buy and price of protection for suite.
