Business Headlines: TJX, iParty & Klout Scores
BOSTON (CBS) – Apparently people still *do* like to shop for bargains.
What`s even more surprising is that business picked up even as weather turned colder towards the end of the month.
No Party for iParty
The weather wasn`t so good for iParty though. The Dedham-based company released its October sales Thursday and said that last month’s nor’easter was a big reason its sales fell – 11 percent in October.
The company says the days before Halloween are typically its best of the year and Halloween itself is the busiest day.

(Klout says the @CBSBoston Twitter score is 54.)
It doesn`t just take into account the number of followers, friends or tweets, but it uses an algorithm to score how influential some person or company is on other users.
Some business leaders say the Klout score oversimplifies the intricacies of social media, but a lot of business execs admit they are checking their Klout score.
