As part of its annual “Still Serving” weekend, the Army & Air Force Exchange Service will salute former Soldiers and Airmen by offering unique specials and events at Exchanges worldwide Oct. 5-11.

“Still Serving” sales and benefits information are arriving in mailboxes of approximately 700,000 Army and Air Force retirees. The flyer features exclusive savings on a wide variety of products including 25 percent off Chaps menswear, a 46″ Samsung LED Smart HDTV for $849, the Mr. Coffee single-serve brewing system for $79.99, an iPad2 for $389 and several food court meal deals.

Additionally, local Exchanges will honor the service of retirees with “Still Serving” celebrations to include fashion shows, door prizes, health clinics and much more.
“Retirees account for roughly 39 percent of the Exchange’s 12.4 million shoppers,” said the Exchange’s Senior Enlisted Advisor Chief Master Sgt. Tony Pearson. “The specials offered in the flyer, combined with “Still Serving” events and festivities at locations worldwide, should provide plenty of incentive for retirees to come and rediscover the value of their Exchange.”

In addition to the savings at brick and mortar Exchanges, www.shopmyexchange.com will offer 10 percent off any order of $100 or more to shoppers who sign up for the “Online Savings Club E-newsletter,” which offers online savings and exclusive discounts.

Authorized shoppers of all ages can learn more about activities planned for the weekend of Oct. 5 at their nearest Exchange by calling their local store manager. Contact information for all Army and Air Force Exchanges can be found online at www.shopmyexchange.com through the “Store Locator” link.
