Navy to close Barbers Point Commissary on April 30
The Navy said Friday that it plans to close the Barbers Point Commissary on April 30.
The building and property will be turned over to Ford Island Ventures on June 1.
A news release said that while the store continues to serve a number of customers, "the Navy has not had an operational presence in the area since (Naval Air Station Barbers Point) closed in 1999, and there is no longer Navy family housing in the area."
The 20,000-square-foot store employed 41 people, all of whom have been extended job opportunities with the Defense Commissary Agency, the Navy said.
DeCA operates four other commissaries on Oahu — one at Schofield Barracks, two at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam and one at Marine Corps Base Hawaii.
