I have over 2 hours until serving time and this turkey is only 20 degrees away from being done. Should I turn off the oven for a while? Lower the temp?

Is it close to 165 with a thermometer? It would be better to take it our when it's done than have an overcooked turkey. You could lower the temp to 325 if its been cooking at a higher temp.
A cooked turkey will stay warm for quite sometime so even if it's done 1 1/2 hours before serving time, it should be ok. After it's been resting for 30 min, tent it loosely with foil
Skip the trip to the vending machine.
