Originating from the early 19th century, the Navy Exchange’s initial beginnings involved merchants selling goods to sailors from arriving Navy boats in the 1800’s. Due to the often inflated prices of the items, a formal canteen was later established on the USS Indiana in 1896, with intentions of ensuring fairer deals between the two parties. From there, it wasn’t until 1909 that The Naval Appropriations Act helped to initiate the first official store on ships. As business grew on the vessels, so did their on-land counterparts. Eventually putting the two operations together, the Navy Ship’s Store Officeーthe precursor to the modern retail store chain, was founded in the mid 1940’s. Since then, the Navy Exchange has expanded to include well over 300 different stores across the country with over 14,000 employees. A popular retail store destination, they sell an assortment of products including electronics, handbags, footwear, beauty products, furniture, and more.
As with most major retail stores, the Navy Exchange will also be joining in on the Black Friday fun this year. From fancy LED TVs to inflatable play houses, they will be discounting over a hundred different items this forthcoming Thanksgiving weekend. The Navy Exchange’s largest annual event, they will be slashing the prices to a whole new lowーin fact, it’s during Black Friday that they offer shoppers the lowest prices of the year. According to what has been released, they will be opening their doors bright and early at 5AM on Friday, November 25th, 2016 for your shopping convenience. Aside from their bargain offers, The Navy Exchange will also be charging no sales taxーwhich means more savings back into your wallet. Most, if not all of the discounted items will be available on a limited basis while supplies last, so be sure to head out to the store early if an item or two has caught your eye.
Whether you’re in the market for a new North Face jacket or a pair of designer sunglasses, the Navy Exchange’s got everything that you’d need, and more. Not only will they be putting up dozens of bargain deals, but they’re even offering a special where customers are able to enjoy no interest nor payments for a period of 6 months with any purchase over $499. If you don’t feel like driving out to the store after having feasted on turkey the previous night, you can also do your Black Friday shopping in the comfort of your own home via their official website. For your convenience, we have compiled a list of some of the best deals offered by the Navy Exchange this upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. Please keep in mind that these are only highlights and are in no way representative of their entire Black Friday flyer.
