Next <i>StorefrontBacktalk</i> Newsletter Will Be Published January 5th

As is our tradition, StorefrontBacktalk shuts down for the last two weeks in December, due to the fact that y'all are far too busy (a) supporting the biggest selling weeks of the year until December 25th, (b) supporting the biggest returns-and-exchanges week of the year after December 25th and (c) closing the quarterly books until December 31st on what everyone hopes will be a bigger year than 2010.

That means our next regular weekly issue will arrive on January 5th, 2012. In the meantime, everything else will still be live (the Web sites, our Kindle version, our Twitter tweets, our mobile sites, etc.). And we'll, as always, send out breaking news alerts if circumstances merit.
