It used to be $400. But because of Hurricane Sandy, all you have to do is spend $300 by November 22, and you can get a free turkey for your holiday table.
It's all to help people impacted by Hurricane Sandy. ShopRite has lowered the amount shoppers must spend in order to qualify for a free Thanksgiving turkey, according to Supermarket News.

Employers are covered by the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), which defines whether an employee is entitled to be paid when a business is closed. If you fall under the status of “exempt”, as many salaried workers are, you are entitled to be paid. If you are non-exempt, then you are not—although you should still receive a paycheck for hours that were worked prior to the arrival of Sandy. http://www.dol.gov/whd/regs/compliance/fairpay/fs17g_salary.htm http…

AOL Chairman and CEO Tim Armstrong gives advice to small business owners via Patch Partners.
There are dozens and dozens of small businesses in South Brunswick. Some of them may be places you and your family frequent, businesses that have been in South Brunswick for as long as you can remember. And some may be your go-to places instead of national chains. AOL Chairman and CEO Tim Armstrong may stand behind a global brand, but he believes in the power of small businesses. In his recent interview with Patch Partners, a website connecting business owners to Patch in local communities, he offered his insight into what can set a small business above the rest of the competition. Small businesses can hold a lot of power if they are intuitive with their customer base, Armstrong said. “Small businesses can be nimble and can have intimate …
