The store provides great deals for military personnelSailors at Naval Station San Diego searching for the latest bargains may now be in luck, as the California installation recently celebrated the grand opening of a new Navy exchange department store earlier in the week.

For those unfamiliar with the store, Navy Exchange, or NEX as it is also known, began life as a sort of trading post for military personnel but has evolved into a more wide reaching department store offering specialized bargains for members of the armed forces. Similar outlets operate on Air Force, Army and marine installations across the country as well.

The 151,000-square-foot facility, which is the result of a more than two-year renovation process, has been updated to include a number of "green" features including energy efficient lighting, and water conservation projects which the Navy Compass estimates will save $21,000 and 240,000 gallons per year respectively.

Visitors can also take advantage of other upgrades including a new escalator, redesigned flower shop, a glasses store, dry cleaner, pharmacy, barbershop and beauty salon.

The growth comes at a fitting time, as the installation is expected to receive a surge of sailors over the next five years, according to Captain Rick L. Williamson.
