Sephora at Menlo Park Mall is holding a huge event to help the Woodbridge Animal Shelter
You can look lovely with makeup, hair and clothing, but nothing's more beautiful than helping a pet who needs you. Sephora, the cosmetic and skin care store at Menlo Park Mall, will be hosting "Shop for a Cause" today - a wonderful day of beauty and fun to benefit the Woodbridge Animal Shelter.

Eligible pets and shelter volunteers will also be on hand at the mall's center court for adoption. Perricone MD will be providing free skin care analysis, and Jamba Juice and Auntie Anne's Pretzels will be giving out free samples all day long. Make a day of it, and help the township's local animal shelter.

The Menlo Park Barnes & Noble just resigned their lease for another five years.
It's going to be good news for Woodbridge and area residents. Barnes & Noble will not be closing its Menlo Park Mall store. The Woodbridge Patch story that the bookstore chain will be closing at least 20 stores a year over the next ten years generated a response from the corporation. "We extended the lease on our Menlo Park store through 2018," said B&N spokeswoman Mary Ellen Keating. "We are not closing and plan to serve the community for many years to come." It was a welcome relief for Woodbridge bookreaders. Since Borders closed its last store in Woodbridge Center in 2011, the township with almost 100,000 hasn't had a new bookstore to serve its devoted readers. The Menlo Park Mall B&N store has been the closest book lovers could go to …

A smartphone makes a great gift for yourself or for someone else. But receiving a smartphone is a bit like buying a pet: the fun parts also come with some work and some adjustments. Downloading apps that make life easier and incorporate local information is like training a puppy. It results in less hassle and more fun. The major difference between a smartphone and your computer is that it’s tough to see the whole Internet on that little screen. Apps are simply ways of displaying something you usually do on your computer’s web browser, but in a simpler and more elegant way that makes sense on a little screen. Each app is represented by a small square icon that you touch once to launch its features and functions, whether it be GPS …
