Nutrition retailer adds location at JBLM
Health and wellness product retailer 5 Star Nutrition has announced the launch of 11 new locations at military bases across the country, including one at Joint Base Lewis-McChord.
The Fort Lewis store, like the other 10 debuting at bases, is one in 5 Star’s Army & Air Force Exchange Service (or AAFES) line.
"We opened our first AAFES military base location at Fort Bliss's Freedom Crossing in 2015, and immediately we saw a real cohesion between military ideals and 5 Star Nutrition's core values: hard work, inspiration, goal-setting and accountability," said Brian Marver, CEO of 5 Star Nutrition.
"Opening these Exchange locations and further aligning with the military is very important for our brand and customers, and is personally important to me and my team. My older brother, grandfather and uncle were all in the military, and I have a deep, profound respect for those who serve. Some 20 percent of our team is made up of veterans, and military members are honored with discounts and other benefits at 5 Star Nutrition."
The exchanges will include machines that provide body composition analyses to trach body fat and lean muscle mass to monitor results. Other announced location at military bases include Fort Hood in Killen, Texas and West Point in West Point, N.Y.
