WASHINGTON – The Air Force Officers Wives Club (AFOWC) Thrift Store at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling (JBAB) announced a Veteran’s Day sale with prices as low as 50 percent off.
In honor of America’s heroes, the thrift shop is reducing prices to unprecedented lows.
“We typically never put these items on sale because our prices are already so low, but we plan to make an exception all next week in honor of Veteran’s Day,” Annisa Chesnut, AFOWC second vice president said.
The sale includes uniform clothing and boots, but does not include specialty marked items and uniforms accessories, such as belts, patches, hats and other items, according to Chesnut.
“We have plenty of stock on hand, with the exception of maternity sizes and we accept credit cards with a minimum $10 purchase,” she said.
Run by volunteers, the shop, located at 13 Brookley Avenue (the same building that houses the JBAB Military and Family Service Support Center), is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
Store profits and donations are used to support worthy causes. Chesnut said, “We are thrilled that we can support local military charities and college scholarships for military dependents every year.”
