Best of the Cost of Living: From dead malls to getting cereal (or anything else) shipped to your door every month!
For Boxing Day, we are revisiting some of our favourite recent stories about the shopping experience. First we head to Calgary's Northland Village Mall — which is now closed — to hear from a restaurant owner-operator about what it means to be on death row in a dead mall.
We also explain the new trend of "buy now, pay later" online — and how it's actually not so new.
Plus do you wish you could get a new set of treats for your pet pig mailed to you every month? Or maybe you just really love getting new cereal on a regular basis? We explain subscription boxes.
