If you have no other way of contacting her besides Facebook, what else can you do? I recently added a guy who I haven't seen or talked to in a few years, and he might've been weirded out a bit, but so what? Do what you gotta do.

As my grandfather used to say, you're already NOT dating her, so the worst that could happen is ... you stay the same.

Go back to the store and ask for her number. Then call her up and ask her out.

How does one "hang out on Facebook"?

By pressing the like button a lot?

Am I actually "hanging out" with the this woman who posts a lot of really funny dog videos (that I "like" on Facebook)?

Is this cheating?

I wanted to add - you are not going to the store to ask her out. You're going to the store to see her again. You're interested in her, and are putting in the effort and time, possibly going out of your way to see her and get to know her a bit better. Don't go to the store and ask her on a date. Say something funny "I like coming to this store now that I know someone who works here!" or "I find myself coming to this store more often now that you work here."
Damned if he does, damned if he doesn't, huh?

End result is that he wants a date, so let's cut through that crap. I'm guessing tagging along at her workplace is "creepy" unless she already finds him likable, so OP has nothing to lose.
