A grand opening and ribbon cutting for Starbucks at the Scott Air Force Base Exchange took place Feb. 9.
Rita Sheridan, Army and Air Force Exchange Service general manager, and Lt. Col. Andy Braxton, 375th Mission Support Group deputy, spoke at the event.
Braxton commented on the AAFES’s motto, “We go where you go,” and the importance of AAFES locations for servicemembers, especially in deployed locations.
Free samples, Starbucks swag, and buy one get one free sandwiches were available to customers during the event.
Starbucks is a new addition to the Scott Exchange, adding another option for dining.
