The main store and all other de- partments will be open. Cigarette prices to increase The price of cigarettes at the Navy Exchange will increase 15 cents per carton Wednesday. This increase is the result of higher prices from the manufacturer. Cashier's Office The Main Retail Store Cashier's Office and check-cashing facility will operate 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. The office will close for employee breaks 11-11:15 a.m. Monday through Saturday and 4-4:15 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.

During the late store hours Thurs- day evenings before Christmas, the Cashier's Office will remain open un- til the store closes. Travelers checks and money orders will not be sold 30 minutes before closing. Clearance sale continues To reduce the inventory and to clear the shelves and storerooms for new merchandise, the half-price clearance will continue until all sale items are sold. Sale items are identified and priced at least 50 per cent off. Some customers have asked, "Why is the exchange selling so many Items at half-price?" Clearance sales are a way of life in the resale world. Some items on sale now are ones which couldn't be ordered fast enough a few months ago. Customer demands often change faster than ordering cycles. Clearance sales are a way to re- duce the inventory, providing custom- ers with the merchandise desired. Stereo gear to arrive New York has advised the Keflavik Exchange that the long overdue stereo equipment orders should arrive by the end of November. A customs delay in New York and changing from air parcel post to sur- face shipment have resulted in out- standing orders from last May. The stereo gear should be on the shelf Dec. 1. Found A pair of ladies' prescription glasses was left in the Beverage Store. The owner may pick them up during regular hours. "I.D. card please" To protect the privilege of pa- tronizing the Navy Exchange, a number of control measures are used. Among these measures is a system of Identification whereby only authorized patrons are accorded ex- change privileges. They include: Armed Services Identification Card (DD Form 2) or the Uniformed Services Identification and Privilege Card (DD Form 1173) and the Navy Exchange Privilege Permit (Form SS 159) are used for identifi- cation purposes at the exchange. They ensure against unauthorized personnel, taking advantage of a benefit to which only military per- sonnel and their dependents are en- titled. Dependents should be aware of their cards' value. In addition to an awareness for proper identification, it is neces- sary to recognize your role in safe- guarding this privilege. It is your responsibility to adhere to the basic rules, regarding purchases made at the exchange. Although simple, the rules are very clear on one point—do not make purchases for unauthorized personnel. Failure to abide by this rule could jeopardize a hard-earned benefit ex- tended to you and your family. The Keflavik Navy Exchange en- forces this measure by requiring pro- per identification at each check-out area or cash register before the sale is completed. Radio/TV Repair Shop The Radio/TV Repair Shop is located in Bldg. T-19 at the Per- sonalized Services Center behind the Main Exchange. Qualified technicians are ready to assist with radio, TV or stereo problems. Sport Shop The Sport Shop, located in Toy- land, reverted to Navy Exchange ownership Tuesday. It will continue to provide a fine selection of sporting goods and equipment, so don't forget to include the Sport Shop when shopping for those holiday gifts. Let the exchange know your sport- ing goods needs—give your recommen- dation. Commissary Store The Commissary Store hopes that the pumpkin pie mix and stuffing mix will arrive before Thanksgiving. The Commissary Store has as ex- cellent frozen deep dish pumpkin cus- tard pie in the frozen food depart- ment. Arrangements are being negotiated with Norfolk for the produce plane to arrive Wednesday. If so the store will extend Its hours then to accom- modate patrons, wishing to shop for fresh produce for Thanksgiving.
