It depends on the situation.

I put down that I would try in store but then buy online later without really reading your OP.

The reason for this and I can give a couple of prime examples.

Wanted a new mattress, as soon as we walked into dreams got jumped on by a sales person and quite frankly couldn't get rid of them the entire time we were in the shop.

I can't stress how much I hate that.

DFS similar situation, every 2 minutes asking if we needed help. We do our research on these companies websites about what we want to look at, go in and see them in person, then go home and order them from their websites. I don't want to sit there for an hour filling stuff in, random chit chat with someone who couldn't care less if I was even alive or not pretending to be best friends, having all sorts of extras thrown at me, when I can just sit in peace at home for 5 minutes and achieve the same thing.

I know that's not technically showrooming as we bought from the companies we went to look at and we wouldn't 'showroom' an independent business.

If there is tech I want, I will scour the net and buy the cheapest/best offer as if you're buying a branded bit of tech like a mobile phone, tv etc you know what you're getting.

Seldom do we actually venture out to physical stores in the best of times let alone now.

For soft furnishings I need to sit on / lie on the goods to see if they are comfortable. So I don't think I'd go for an online purchase for these type of items.

Totally O/T but can I ask from a comfort factor is there any difference between a mattress on a divan or on slatted boards

Thanks for the feedback!

Of course you can ask! In theory, yes there is a difference. It comes down to a logical thought really - a divan base is fixed and firm. It wont move. Slatted bed frames do have some give and therefore will increase 'travel' and give the feeling of more comfort. In reality, the difference is marginal. My mattress on my previous base (divan) and my new bed frame (slatted) feels exactly the same. IMO comfort comes from the mattress and mattress only! Hope that helps
