As of July 31, the new Army and Air Force Exchange Express service†station on Fitz-Gerald Boulevard†is now open.
The station†is approximately 2,700 square feet of sales area, doubling the current station, and has 10 pumps to help facilitate a quick in and out for customers.
The Exchange has also signed on with Firestone, which has three bays, bringing a private car care business to the base.†Firestone Complete Auto Care will have their grand opening Aug. 5†and will offer specials through Aug. 11 via coupons distributed around Edwards.
The Edwards AFB Exchange and base leadership had the groundbreaking ceremony Sept. 4, 2012 for the new 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.
