Luke exchange keeping ‘thanks’ in Thanksgiving

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 the Luke Air Force Base Exchange doors open at 4 a.m. the day after Thanksgiving.

“As a part of the military community, the Exchange understands that time with family, for both customers and associates, is a priority,” said Pete Alaniz, Luke AFB Exchange general manager. “An early opening at the exchange 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.
