RAFB Exchange store holds grand opening after complete remodel
Military shoppers at the Robins Air Force Base Exchange might see a bit of a change when they go to make their purchases.
After months of renovations, a grand opening was held Wednesday to show off remodeled store fronts and a new look. The Exchange went through a transformation from a grid design to a "V" design. It now features "lifestyle centers" of style, home and life.
A portion of sales from purchases goes back into capital improvements, which is what funded the renovation.
"We serve those who serve. We offer price matching, so all of our prices are always the same and we give back to the MWR (Morale, Welfare and Recreation) dividend. Two-thirds of all of our earnings goes to the MWR and then all the rest of the money goes back to capital improvement," said General Manger Anthony Ventura.
Shoppers must have an authorized ID card to make purchases. Ventura says it's more beneficial than a traditional store.
