Exchange keeping ‘Thanks’ in Thanksgiving

Chris Ward

With a quarter of its work force comprised of military family members, the Army & Air Force Exchange Service is a true example of family serving family. As such, the focus on Thanksgiving Day will be on family and shopping will have to wait until Friday.

Customers will not have to wait long to start their holiday shopping as Exchange doors open at 4 a.m. in the United States the day after Thanksgiving. Stores in the Pacific region will open at 7 a.m. while European Exchanges will welcome shoppers at 8 a.m.

“As a part of the military community, the Exchange understands that time with family, for both customers and associates, is a priority,” said the Exchange’s Chief of Public Affairs Lt. Col. Antwan C. Williams. “Early openings at Exchanges worldwide on ‘Black Friday’ will allow shoppers to give thanks with loved ones and still partake in the savings.”

Authorized shoppers can get a head start on special promotions, updated throughout the holiday season, by visiting the Exchange’s “Sale Flyers” page at http://www.shopmyexchange.com/ExchangeStores/SalesFlyer.aspx.
