Shopping Edwards AFB Exchange pays dividends

Airmen and their families shopping and dining at Army & Air Force Exchange Service stores and restaurants on Edwards Air Force Base generated a dividend of more than $481,000 last year for Air Force quality-of-life programs.

Over the past 10 years, the Exchange has provided more than $2.4 billion in dividends to military programs including Club Muroc dining center, Muroc Lake Golf Course and Outdoor Recreation activites.

“Roughly two-thirds of Exchange earnings are paid to the services’ Morale, Welfare and Recreation programs, while the other third is used to build new stores or renovate facilities,” said Edwards AFB Exchange General Manager Mike Wiles. “For example, in 2013 we built a brand-new Express with a Firestone.”

The Exchange’s mission of providing quality goods and services at competitively low prices while generating earnings to support quality-of-life efforts means that the Exchange benefit is more than finding a good price on merchandise. This structure ensures that shopping at the Edwards Exchange or online at www.shopmyexchange.com†improves the community.

“When customers shop and dine at the Exchange, they are investing in their own community, making Edwards a better place to live and work,” Wiles said. “100 percent of Exchange earnings serve Airmen and their families.”
