Shop Talk is now on Facebook. In honor of our new page, we want to know: Are you Facebook friends with your boss? Look to the right of this story to take our online poll. Well publish the results on this page next week. And be sure to like us at facebook.com/shoptalknando.
Last week, we asked how you are planning to pay for holiday shopping. Seventy-one percent of you said credit cards, 14 percent said cash, and 14 percent are using the money from a part-time job.
