North Korean Interiors Look Exactly Like a Wes Anderson Film Set

When most of us think of North Korea, we picture grey cement buildings looming against a cold, unforgiving sky. Not bright rooms cheerfully decorated with candy-colored walls and furniture. Yet, when London-based architecture critic Oliver Wainwright toured the country, he was stunned by the painstaking symmetry and pastel interiors of several buildings.

Colliers International, in a first of its kind look at the so-called deals on these major retail holidays, studied 44 products on flyers for nine national Canadian chain retailers in 2014 and compared prices between the two big shopping days.

The company found better prices on Boxing Day for 36 per cent of the products, while Black Friday offered a steeper discount for only 16 per cent of products.

“Black Friday sale prices, on both sides of the border, are often touted as the lowest prices of year,” Colliers says in its report, released Monday. “For Canadians, however, the lowest prices of the year have been traditionally found at Boxing Day or Boxing Week sales immediately following Christmas.” [Continue]
