Coming soon!

exchange
The new Army and Air Force Exchange†is†nearing completion.

The Edwards AFB Exchange had their groundbreaking ceremony Sept. 4, 2013†for the new service station.

This project started†almost three†years ago after the need to upgrade existing facilities was recognized. The†current gas station has been around for 20-plus years.

The new station will keep in compliance with California environmental law. The Exchange has also signed on with Firestone, which will provide three bays and bring a private car care business to the base. It will also have 10 pumps to help facilitate a quick in and out for customers.

The new service station will be approximately 2,700 sq. feet of sales area, doubling the current station.

The new station will be located across the street from Starbucks on Fitzgerald Blvd.
