Preparing that big Thanksgiving Day meal can be a real chore.
Some shoppers have found a way to make it easier.
Manasquan resident Carole Lyons says buying a cooked turkey should help her have a more enjoyable Thanksgiving.
"You have to reheat it in the oven. When you put it in, you're able to run around, do other things, get the table set, prepare everything, enjoy your family's time. This way you could eat on time."
Sea Girt resident Mike Sullivan had a different motivation for his cooked turkey purchase.
