Ft. Gordon new shopping complex

FORT GORDON, Ga. (AP) — Work will soon begin on a $21 million project to expand and renovate a shopping complex on Fort Gordon.

The
Augusta Chronicle reports that Fort Gordon has been authorized to
renovate and nearly double its 20-year-old facility, known as the Fort
Gordon Post Exchange.

Maj. Gen. LaWarren V. Patterson, Fort
Gordon's commanding officer, says the project shows the faith and
confidence that both the Department of Defense and the Army and Air
Force Exchange Service have in the Fort Gordon Post Exchange.

Work is set to begin Nov. 1.

The
newspaper says the post exchange reported more than $8 million in
earnings last year, thanks to an exemption from sales tax and an average
merchandise price that is 25 percent less than department stores off
Fort Gordon.
