Commissary: There is a very small Commissary on this base, similar to a Rite Aid with a small amount of food.

Exchange: This base has a great exchange for shopping and it’s huge!

Home Store: There’s a really nice home store on this base with a great selection of indoor and outdoor needs.  During the holidays, this is the place to stock on your Christmas or holiday decor.

Cellar: There’s a fantastic wine cellar here on this base. Part of the reason why is because one of the most concentrated areas housing admirals are on the island of Coronado and many senior staff retire out in San Diego.
