Edwards AFB Exchange keeps the ‘thanks’ in Thanksgiving

Black Friday at the Edwards Exchange. Doors will open at 4 a.m., Nov. 27.

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 will be on family. 
“As a part of the military community, the Exchange understands that time with family, for both customers and associates, is a priority,” said Charles Eaves, Edwards Exchange general manager.  “Opening at 4 a.m. on Black Friday will allow shoppers to give thanks with loved ones and still partake in the savings.” 
Service members who are on the installation on Thanksgiving Day will still have access to convenience items as the Edwards Express will be open.  
Complete details on Exchange Black Friday weekend sales and specials are available at www.shopmyexchange.com on the Weekly Ads tab.
