The grand opening of the new Fort Benning Post Exchange is scheduled for 10 a.m. Wednesday at the new facility located directly across the street from the current PX on Marne Road.
The new store is more than double the size of the old mall with 247,000 square feet of floor space, making it the third largest PX in the world.
The grand opening will coincide with the biggest shopping day of the year—the day after Thanksgiving—so shoppers can take advantage of discounted, military pricing during their holiday shopping. After the Wednesday grand opening, the store will close at normal business hours and remain closed Thanksgiving Day.
It will then reopen Friday and remain open for 72 consecutive hours.
The new store will replace the current PX, which was built in 1974.
