SCHOFIELD BARRACKS — Army & Air Force Exchange Service deputy director Mike Immler is making it his mission to ensure the Exchange is doing all it can to serve Soldiers at U.S Army Garrison-Hawaii.

“The Exchange is dedicated to making USAG-Hawaii a community, ensuring Soldiers, retirees and their families have a place to shop and dine that they can be proud of,” Immler said.

To better understand how the Exchange can best meet the needs of the community, Immler met with Col. Richard Fromm, garrison commander, during his visit, Tuesday, and toured the Schofield Barracks Exchange facilities, Express locations and the Fort Shafter PX Market, talking to Exchange associates and shoppers.

The Exchange is dedicated to bringing name brands to Soldiers. A Pizza Hut opened at Schofield Barracks, recently, and Boston Market will be coming soon.

This summer, a “BE FIT” concept shop is coming to the main store. This store-in-store concept will look like major sporting goods stores, with athletic footwear and apparel together—a one-stop shop for products that contribute to health and resiliency featuring name brands.

“We are committed to helping make USAG Hawaii a great place to live and work,” Immler said. “The Exchange remains focused on bringing terrific brands and great value to Soldiers.”

If Soldiers can’t find the products they need in the Schofield Barracks Exchange, they can go to shopmyexchange.com, which has been improved to make shopping and order fulfillment easier, Immler said.

Every time Soldiers shop at the Exchange or shopmyexchange.com, they are generating funds to help make life better at USAG Hawaii.

“For every dollar earned, historically, 67 cents comes back to the military community through the Army Morale, Welfare and Recreation dividend,” Immler said. “Last year, sales at USAG-Hawaii Exchange facilities generated more than $1.1million on behalf of MWR programs. Every time shoppers buy from the Exchange, they are improving their entire military community.”

Immler is the first civilian deputy director of the 120-year-old organization, which employs approximately 35,500 associates worldwide. In addition, 35 active-duty service members are assigned to the Exchange.
