Pronounced "ay-feez"; acronym for Army and Air Force Exchange Service. A military department store similar to Wal-Mart, Target, JC Penney, or the like. Merchandise varies from store to store, and many offer name-brand items lower than the general retail price. (E.g., Coach purses) AAFES also imposes no sales tax. This is to provide a benefit to service members and their families, many of whom are often underpaid when compared to their civilian counterparts.
"AAFES' mission is to provide quality merchandise and services at uniformly low prices."

A great place to work if you enjoy having to deal with BMW's(big military wifes) and managment that treat their employees like garbage. Terrible place to shop for clothes, awful selection.
Today I went to the PX to buy some clothes but all they had was ugly ghetto hip-hop clothes and Tommy Hilfiger rags! screw Aafes!

Army Air Force Extortion Society. Since military bases are always in the middle of nowhere sometime these cock suckers run up the price on a few necessary items.
The fucking barber at Grand Forks used to charge eight ninty fucking five for a hair cut, and they still fucked it up. The goddamn Army Air Force Extortion Society AAFESstrikes again.
