Bucks County Toddler Shot/Killed; Target Hiring 70,000 Workers; Aramark Announces New Headquarters

A 2-year-old boy was shot and killed this morning inside his home in Bucks County. The incident happened around 11 a.m. on the 2100 block of Kumry Road in Milford Township. The Bucks County District Attorney's Office identified the toddler as Benjamin Austin Smith. He was taken to St. Luke's Quakertown Hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later. He was at home with his 26-year-old father. The house belongs to the boy's paternal grandparents. Initial reports are that this was an accidental shooting and that the child shot himself. It is not known how he got a hold of the gun. State Police and local detectives are investigating.

Target says that it plans to hire more than 70,000 seasonal workers during the busy holiday season. That is the same as it did last year. It will also be hiring 7,500 additional workers at its distribution centers that handle online orders and sends products to stores. Hiring events will be held at all store locations on October 14th and 15th. You can also apply online. Existing workers will get to choose their holiday hours first.

Global food, facilities, and uniform giant Aramark Corp. unveiled the location of their new headquarters today at a press conference at Cira Green in University City. Today's event location was the perfect perch for all to look back across the Schuylkill River at 2400 Market Street. That is where Aramark plans to move it's headquarters to in 2018. The current building is being redeveloped by PMC Property Group. It will end up being 9 stories, up from 4. Aramark will lease 300,000 sq-ft on the top 5 floors. It's logo will also appear on the top of the building. Back in the spring, the company said that planned to stay in Philadelphia when its lease was up, but that it was exploring other locations. It has occupied its namesake Aramark Tower at 1101 Market Street since 1986. The company has been in Philadelphia for 55 years. Gov. Wolf and Mayor Kenny both spoke at the press conference.
