Bridgestone Celebrates 30 Years With The Exchange

Bridgestone Celebrates 30 Years With The Exchange

Bridgestone serves the nation’s military and their families at more than 40 tire/auto service centers on military bases.

This month, Bridgestone Retail Operations, a subsidiary of Bridgestone Americas, invited military communities at Fort Campbell, KY; Joint Base Andrews, MD; and Joint Base Lewis-McChord, WA, to special celebrations marking 30 years of partnership with Army & Air Force Exchange Service (the “Exchange”). Bridgestone currently serves the nation’s military and their families at more than 40 tire and automotive service centers located on military bases in collaboration with the Exchange, which provides tax-free merchandise, goods and services that military communities need, regardless of location, risk or challenge.

Bridgestone also surprised BGCA-affiliated CYS Services Youth Centers on each military base with brand-new passenger vans that will give more area kids and teens access to high-impact, out-of-school programming. Additionally, USAG Fort Bliss CYS Services was presented with a $60,000 donation to fund the purchase of a new van. The van donations were made possible through the Bridgestone Driving Great Futures initiative, which has raised over $20 million from BSRO customers and teammates for Boys & Girls Clubs nationwide since 2015, Bridgestone said.

“Bridgestone Retail Operations is committed to serving those who serve our country each and every day,” said Marko Ibrahim, president, BSRO. “We are thankful for the opportunity to provide our military communities with trusted service and a promise to care, and we look forward to many more years of collaboration.”

In 1993, BSRO established its first Exchange store at Joint Base Lewis-McChord near Tacoma, Washington. The Exchange is the 54th largest retailer in the United States, operating more than 5,000 department stores, convenience stores, restaurants, mall stores and services.
