TV hypnotist Derren Brown left fellow customers gobsmacked yesterday following a surprise visit to DFS’s Taunton store.
‘It was incredible,’ gasped one shopper, who was wondering how he’d fit two corner sofas into his Chertsey bedsit. ‘He predicted that there would be a sale on before he even went inside the store. He must have had a plant in the Linda Barker department.’
Once inside he then used his famous powers of persuasion to obtain not just one discount but a double discount on a three-seater leather recliner.
‘He even got them to guarantee they would deliver it before Christmas,’ said another DFS customer. ‘I’ve no idea how he did it!’
DFS refused to comment on the incident, but in a written statement did say that the offer must end this Sunday.
