Stars and Stripes: Yokota celebrates ‘re-grand opening’ of expanded base exchange

YOKOTA AIR BASE, Japan — A massive, newly renovated base exchange officially opened Friday at the home of U.S. Forces Japan and 5th Air Force in western Tokyo.

The Army and Air Force Exchange Service has added 25,000 feet of floor space to its largest facility at Yokota so that it can accommodate products that were sold at a BXtra shop on the west side of the installation that shut down last year.

Expanded to 70,000 square feet, the store now sells everything from furniture, sporting goods and gardening supplies to electronics, clothing and alcohol.
