The Robins Base Exchange officially re-opened Thursday with a ribbon cutting ceremony attended by the base community.

Renovations began earlier this year, which also included a name change as part of a rebranding campaign across the Army and Air Force Exchange Service. The new name was changed to the "Exchange," with a large 'X' displayed above it.

As part of renovations over the past few months, shoppers experienced construction as part of 12 phases. Those included dividing the store into 'lifestyle' centers, including Style, Home, and Life.

"The new store design looks great, and the lifestyle centers will add to the overall shopping experience for our Robins military community" said Anthony Ventura, Robins AAFES general manager."

The Exchange Gun Shop is also scheduled to open later in the month, with an assortment of items geared toward hunting and sports. Robins joins about 61 other AAFES sites which currently offer firearms.

The food court is also being renovated. Subway opened Sept. 19

Other new offerings include Popeye's which opened Oct. 17 and Dunkin' Donuts opened Tuesday. Taco John's, Charley's Grilled Subs and Anthony's Pizza have remained in their current spots. All storefronts will receive new face lifts as part of the new branding campaign.
