CABVI’s Base Supply Centers
CABVI operates six Base Supply Centers (BSCs) on military installations across the northeast United States. Although BSCs sell primarily office supplies, including office products that are manufactured by individuals who are blind or severely handicapped, they also provide their Federal customers with thousands of products and supplies when requested. CABVI’s BSCs create employment opportunities for people who are blind. Each store employs, at a minimum, one employee who is blind or severely handicapped.
CABVI’s BSCs employ 22 people, seven of whom are legally blind. Our BSCs generate more than $7.75 million in gross sales annually, the surplus from which provides vision rehabilitation services in our nine-county territory.
CABVI opened its first BSC in 2000. CABVI’s stores are the Dolphin Express located on Subase New London in C.T., the Galaxy Express located on Westover Air Reserve Base in M.A., Shipyard Express located on Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in M.E., Island Express located at Naval Station Newport in R.I., Tobyhanna Office Express located on Tobyhanna Army Depot in P.A., and Arsenal Express at Picatinny Arsenal in N.J. CABVI also has the assignment to operate stores at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, M.D. and at Quantico Marine Base in Quantico, V.A.
