Veterans Shop Tax Free

Veterans Shop Tax Free

Joseph Coupal - Friday, May 18, 2018

Abberly Avera, Manassas, VAHey veterans, you can soon shop tax free.

Starting later this year, all honorably discharged veterans, no matter their branch of service, will be eligible to shop tax-free online at the Army & Air Force Exchange Service with the same discounts they enjoyed on base while in the military. It’s the latest way in which the organization is trying to keep its customers as the armed forces shrink and airmen and soldiers buy more for delivery.

Adding 13 million potential new customers will give extra ammunition to the group that runs the stores on U.S. Army and Air Force bases worldwide as it fights Amazon and other retailers for veterans’ online shopping dollars.

Since hiring its first civilian CEO five years ago, the Exchange has upgraded the brands at base stores to include items like Disney toys, Michael Kors fashions and other top names. Like private stores, it’s also imposed tighter cost controls, reduced the number of employees and improved people’s experience on the website.

“The intent is to really beat Amazon at their game because we have locations literally on the installations,” said CEO Tom Shull. “We’re leaning toward not just ship-from-store but pick-up-from-store and eventually deliver-from-store.”

The Exchange is adding shipping centers within its stores to allow it to send products directly from those locations more cheaply and quickly. Twenty-six stores now ship orders, and that will expand to 55 by the end of the year.

Within the next three years, Shull said the goal is to deliver something on base within two hours of when it is ordered. That’s possible partly because the Exchanges are already on base, cleared by security.

The Exchange delivers most orders on the second day now. Shull said shipping from stores will make a big difference in regions around bases, which are often in more rural areas.

Expanding online shopping to all honorably discharged veterans is expected to add about $200 million annually within three years to the $8.3 billion in sales the Exchanges generated last year.

Adding those shoppers, what Shull called “the foundation of our growth,” is critical to help offset the 13 percent decline in the number of active-duty Army and Air Force soldiers since 2011 when the Exchange generated $10.3 billion revenue.

“It’s a modest benefit, but it can save you thousands of dollars a year,” said Shull, a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy who served in the Army for a decade before starting a retail career at chains including Macy’s.

Former Marine Forrest Cornelius was among the first to sign up at the verification website when it launched in June, and got a chance to start shopping early to test it out. The 51-year-old was impressed by the site and a deal he found on Ray-Ban sunglasses.

“The biggest thing is price. They’re always going to be a little bit cheaper,” said Cornelius, who lives in Dallas.

But competing on price in today’s retail environment is increasingly difficult, said Edward Jones analyst Brian Yarbrough. Just look at how much trouble Walmart has competing with Amazon, he said, because Walmart has the fixed costs associated with its stores.

“To think you’re going to compete on price, you’re going to have a hard time there,” he said.

Under Shull’s leadership, the Exchange stores have traded their industrial feel and reliance on off-brand merchandise for a more modern look featuring well-known labels.

Two-thirds of the main Exchange store at Offutt Air Force Base resembles any department store, with prominent displays of name-brand makeup, Nike fitness gear and Carter’s clothes for kids. The rest is filled with the kind of electronics, appliances, housewares and toys found at Walmart or Sears, with major brands in every section.

The Exchanges don’t pay rent for their military base locations, and the government transports some of their supplies and goods to far-flung locations, but otherwise they operate mostly like an independent retailer. Roughly two-thirds of the employees are family members of soldiers or airmen.

The Exchange, which is part of the Defense Department, reported earnings of $384 million last year. That’s a sharp contrast from five years ago when Shull arrived to projections of $180 million in losses.

Of last year’s profit, $225 million was returned to the defense department to help pay for quality-of-life programs on bases like child development and fitness centers. Besides the main stores, the Exchanges also operate more than 70 movie theaters and bring in franchise restaurants and other vendors for the shopping malls it operates on bases.

Shull feels those are good reasons for the new online shopping privileges to draw veterans to do their shopping there.

“Veterans value the cost savings and what they can do to support the military,” he said.

Moving into a Brand New Apartment Community has Many Benefits

Moving into a Brand New Apartment Community has Many Benefits

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, May 03, 2018

Abberly Avera, Manassas, VAAt first thought, some of the biggest benefits of moving to a new property may be living in a brand new space where everything from appliances to carpet is being used for the first time. But Abberly Avera offers a renting experience that goes beyond new paint.

The excitement of moving into a new property has been likened to that of freshman year of college in a dorm – residents are open to meeting new people and forming new friendships, and everyone is taking this fresh, next step at the same time. Among the benefits of living at a brand new property:

  • Living in a community where everyone is there for the first time builds a sense of community faster because everyone is new and experiencing the property together.
  • High volume of residents moving in on one weekend creates a bond in each specific building.
  • Because the property and amenities such as the pool, gym and clubroom are brand new, renters are exploring them together and taking pride in the space.
  • Regular gatherings and resident events, all providing opportunities for residents to continue get to know their new neighbors.

With every new property, residents have a unique and easy move-in experience. There is something so special about being the first person to live in a space, and everyone has opportunities to connect with others that are also experiencing this community for the first time.

New residents are offered a clean slate in a unit and a community-centric property.

Residents like new apartment communities because they are new, they can watch the community evolve. It's exciting to see new neighbors move in.

Breaking in a new property with neighbors who are also new to the grounds allows for a unique community dynamic. With the holidays approaching, neighbors have an opportunity to share experiences and create "new" traditions in their very own community.

#9 on List of Top Ten Best States: Virginia!

#9 on List of Top Ten Best States: Virginia!

Joseph Coupal - Friday, April 27, 2018

Abberly Avera, Manassas, VAMost Americans do not choose where they grow up and often end up living in the same place as adults, either for financial reasons or because of social and familial connections. Still, many Americans choose to pack up and move to a new state — usually in search of better life.

People who contemplate such a move would certainly consider a state’s overall quality of life. While every person is different and may weigh certain factors more than others, quality of life generally consists of a multitude of factors, including an area’s economy, jobs market, income levels, poverty, crime, education levels, health care, transportation, and whether the area is generally desirable.

Based on these factors and others, 24/7 Wall St. ranked all 50 states for overall quality of life.

9. Virginia

  • 10-yr. population change: +10.1% (21st largest increase)
  • Annual unemployment: 4.0% (tied — 14th lowest)
  • Poverty rate: 11.0% (tied — 12th lowest)
  • Life expectancy at birth: 79.1 years (25th shortest)

Problems with crime tend to be local rather than statewide, but across Virginia crime tends to be low and the state is relatively crime free compared to most of the country. There were just 217 violent crimes reported in the state for every 100,000 residents, nearly half the national figure of 397 incidents per 100,000 people.

Virginians are also among the most likely to have a college degree, which often results in higher incomes and better quality of life across a population. Just over 38% of Virginia adults have a bachelor’s degree, compared to 31.3% of adults nationwide. This high educational attainment rate may help explain Virginia’s relatively low unemployment rate. Last year, average unemployment was 4.0%, well below the national average rate of 4.9%.

Virginia is the Best State On the East Coast to Live in

Virginia is the Best State On the East Coast to Live in

Joseph Coupal - Friday, April 20, 2018

Abberly Avera, Manassas, VAVirginia - what a place to live. Growing up here is one of the greatest gifts. Simply because you get the best of both worlds. Between mountains, beaches, countrysides, cities, and an obvious change in each season, Virginia proves to be the best state on the East Coast.

1. Mountains

Especially mountains in the fall. Whether you grew up hiking them all the time, or if you have never hiked a day in your life, you can always brag about having the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains in your homeland.

2. Virginia Beach.

We live on the coast. Day trip to the beach? Not a problem. Pack up your car and get going with suntan oil and beach chairs.

3. Countryside

There are plenty of windy back roads to roll windows down and drive. Cows. Horses. Goats. Dogs. You'll pass them all.

4. Cities

Virginia Beach. Richmond. Norfolk. Roanoke. Lynchburg. Charlottesville. And like all Virginians, we claim D.C. as one of our own, too.

5. The weather

In the spring, there are beautiful flowers and rain. Being in a college town, the summers are laid back and feel like home. The students are gone, and it gives the rest of the residents a chance to sit around the pool and enjoy the sun. In the fall, the leaves change and temperatures start to drop. There is football and apple picking, along with lots of flannel. In the winter is when people question whether or not Virginia is a northern or southern state. It all just depends on the year. The winters will no doubt get cold, but the snowfall depends on the year. Some years get several feet, and some years get short of an inch. Whatever the amount, this is a state that can, and does get snow.

No other state is able to brag about the same mountains, beaches, countrysides, cities, or weather like this one. Who cares if no one knows whether Virginia is a northern or southern state, it's the best state regardless.

Reasons to Move to Virginia

Reasons to Move to Virginia

Joseph Coupal - Friday, April 13, 2018

Abberly Avera, Manassas, VAWith wide open spaces and big city living, the Commonwealth offers plenty of reasons to make a move.

The home of more presidents than any other state, Virginia’s history is long and rich – and residents are continuing to grow the state by attracting top jobs and high-quality education while celebrating the past. Whether you’re looking for metropolitan excitement or country leisure, Virginia is a top place to live. Here are eight reasons to consider relocating.

City Living, Country Relaxing

No matter where you live in Virginia, you can have the best of both worlds. Major cities such as Richmond, Virginia Beach and Charlottesville offer thriving art scenes, public transportation, diverse culinary offerings and other city amenities. Right outside city limits, you can find the Atlantic Ocean, the Appalachian Mountains or even just wide open country.

Blast to the Past

As one of the original 13 colonies, Virginia’s history is long and rich. Odes to the past can be found all over the state with George Washington’s home Mount Vernon, the Arlington National Cemetery and Historic Williamsburg – just to name a few. Want even more history? Northern Virginia borders Washington D.C., so there’s even more ways to get in touch with America’s roots.

Jobs, Jobs, Jobs

Looking for new job opportunities? Virginia’s job growth lends itself the ideal environment for starting or switching your career easily, with unemployment below the national average at 3.8 percent. Leading job sectors in the state include farming, military, service and business. In fact, Northern Virginia is home to six of the 20 highest income counties in the United States.

Quality Health Care

A top hospital is never far away in Virginia, with 89 hospitals throughout the state. Inova Fairfax Hospital is the largest hospital in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area, and the University of Virginia Medical Center is highly ranked in endocrinology. Virginia also has a ratio of 127 primary care physicians per 10,000 residents, which is the 16th highest ratio nationally.

Earn a Degree

Virginia’s school system consistently ranks in the top 10 on the National Assessment of Educational Progress for school quality and student performance. In fact, Virginia has a high school graduation rate of 85 percent. And after high school, students have 176 colleges and universities in the state to choose from – many of which are nationally ranked.

Discover Things to Do in Virginia

The Old Dominion is also rich in arts and culture, with publicly funded museums across the state, as well as theaters found in cities and suburbs. The Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts in Vienna is the only national park designed for us as a performing arts center. The Virginia Opera and the Virginia Symphony Orchestra lead the state’s fine arts, and with Washington D.C. to the north, the Smithsonian museum system is also in reach.

Family-Friendly Fun

Looking for family fun? Head to one of the state’s seasonal festivals for some quirky fun and to explore your new home. At the end of July, don’t miss the annual Pony Swim & Auction, where wild Chincoteague ponies take a swim in the bay. In September, Bay Days celebrates Chesapeake Bay’s 400 year history, featuring live music and historical events, or there’s the Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival in May that hosts parades and bluegrass concerts.

Happy Neighbors

Virginia cities are often ranked as some of the happiest in the country, with Charlottesville most recently named the happiest city in America by the US National Bureau of Economic Research. And with high job prospects, nationally ranked schools and plenty to do across the state, how could Virginians not be happy?
