Turn Off the Free Shipping Callout in the Header

Some Magento Go themes include a free shipping message below the header. Unlike a common CMS block, this message is actually a layout update made to the home page, and can be easily removed by commenting out a few lines of code. If you change your mind later, it is easy to reverse the process and restore the code.
