Scott AFB Exchange helps Airmen express their love on Valentine’s Day

Apparently a lot of sweethearts like the classics.

Last year, the National Retail Federation estimated that consumers would spend a whopping $2 billion on flowers for Valentine’s Day.

According to WalletHub, 94 percent of people celebrating the holiday wanted candy and chocolate as gifts.

The Exchange is passionate about helping service members and their families save money. The Exchange team’s love for the military community doesn’t fade after Valentine’s Day—it lasts all year, just as Airmen work to protect our freedom year-round.
