A new business called RE-ME handles returns for individuals. Instead of an individual
having to go to UPS, the post office or FedEx to return unwanted Amazon purchases or online purchases, or physically go to a store to return unwanted purchases, RE-ME does it for him. The customer puts the items outside his door with the receipts and RE-ME picks up the items and returns them for the customer. RE-ME also offers dry cleaning pick-up and delivery, as well as in-store purchase order pick-up and delivery back to the customer. Details:


The Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Marlboro-Manalapan real estate office donated a record number of non-perishable food items during its annual collection for the Freehold Area Open Door held from Halloween week through Nov. 18. Affiliated real estate agent Sharyn Kaufman ran the office’s food drive for the 18th year.

“I was especially pleased this year with so many agents participating and going above and
beyond in their shopping for the food pantry,” said Alice Schoemann, branch vice president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Marlboro-Manalapan. “We are thankful we are able to donate to such a worthy cause and take this opportunity to give back.”

The office also collected “turkey money” to give to the food pantry to purchase turkeys for
Thanksgiving. Freehold Area Open Door is a nonprofit agency that provides emergency food and emergency funding to those in need from the Freehold area.
