Rock Island Exchange

Greetings from the Management and Staff of the Rock Island Arsenal Exchange. I would like to take this opportunity to invite all authorized Exchange customers to shop the Arsenal Exchange the next time you are in the area.

Rock Island Arsenal is the largest weapons manufacturing arsenal in the free world. Its ordinance tradition as a center of technical excellence of weaponry and related equipment was forged throughout the Arsenal's 130-year history.

Rock Island Arsenal is located on a 946-acre island, three miles long and approximately 3/4 of a mile wide, in the upper Mississippi River between Iowa and Illinois. During the Civil War, 13,000 Confederate Soldiers were incarcerated on the island. The Arsenal supported the Union during the Civil War, the Spanish-American War, WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and the Gulf War. It is a beautiful installation. Come visit and stop in the Exchange for a supply of film to take pictures of the sites. We can offer you a large assortment of retail items, snacks and military uniforms.

Carl Wolfe, Store Manager, and the Exchange staff of dedicated, friendly associates await your visit and promise all authorized Exchange customers outstanding service.

THE BEST PRICE GUARANTEED: Your Exchange is committed to always having the lowest price. If you find any item we sell at a lower price somewhere else, show us the ad and we'll match it. If the difference is less than $10.00 you don’t even need the ad, just tell us! Even if you have already bought the item, and within 15 days, find it advertised somewhere else for less; we'll match that price too!

JUST COMPARE: Look for this signing throughout the store. This indicates items we guarantee beat the local competitors lowest prices.

And as always shopping at your Exchange is Tax Free!

If you have any questions regarding the Exchange please feel free to use the Exchange Customer Comment Box located in all facilities. Better yet, ask to speak to a manager, there is one in each facility. You will receive a courteous and prompt reply.
