CHAPTER 2 OPERATION OF THE SALES OUTLETS As  a  Ship’s  Serviceman  third  class,  you  can expect to operate one of the sales outlets aboard ship. The sales outlets are part of the ship’s store and   include   retail   stores,   vending   machines, amusement machines, snack bars, and standard Navy  clothing  stores.    The  sales  outlets  are basically  used  to  display  and  sell  ship’s  store merchandise,  except  in  the  case  of  amusement machines where you are selling the use of the video game itself. The cash received from sales in these sales outlets is normally more than the original cost   of   merchandise,   unless   you   are   selling standard  Navy  clothing  stock  which  is  sold  at standard  prices.  This  additional  cash  is  used  to pay   for   expenses   incurred   in   operating   the activities  of  the  ship’s  store.  Any  cash  left  after paying  expenses  is  available  for  transfer  to  the recreation fund, which is used for the recreation of  crew  members  aboard  ship. SHIP’S STORE As  mentioned  earlier  in  chapter  1  of  this training  manual  (TRAMAN),  the  S-3  division  is part of the supply department and is manned by Ship’s  Servicemen.  In  a  broad  sense,  the  ship’s store  is  the  S-3  division  because  it  includes  all  the activities that make up the S-3 division. This is why we commonly refer to the S-3 division as the ship’s   store   operation.   In   chapter   1   of   this TRAMAN, we mentioned that the supply officer is  responsible  for  the  overall  operation  of  the supply department including the ship’s store. On ships with junior Supply Corps officers attached, the  commanding  officer  may  designate  them  in writing  to  assume  financial  accountability  and overall  management  for  the  ship’s  store.  Once designated, this officer is referred to as the ship’s store   officer. ESTABLISHING  A  SHIP’S  STORE A ship’s store consisting of sales outlets and service  activities  will  be  operated  on  ships  in commission   (except   submarines)   to   which   an officer  of  the  Supply  Corps  is  assigned.  Before establishing  the  ship’s  store,  the  commanding officer  must  report  by  letter  the  date  the  ship’s store will begin operations to the Navy Resale and Services  Support  office  (NAVRESSO).  A  copy  of the letter should be forwarded to the ship’s type commander and Fleet Accounting and Disbursing Center,   Atlantic   Fleet,   by   ships   with   service designator  V  and  Fleet  Accounting  and  Disbursing Center,   Pacific   Fleet,   by   ships   with   service designator R. Once this is done, the commanding officer may authorize any or all of the following activities  to  operate: Sales Outlets Retail store(s) Vending  machine(s) Amusement  machine(s) Snack  bar(s) Standard  Navy  clothing  store(s) Service Activities Barbershop Laundry Dry-cleaning  plant Operation  of  the  ROM  microcomputer  and maintenance  of  automated  ship’s  store  records The size of the ship’s store operation varies from one  ship  to  another.  The  size  basically  depends on the size of the ship, the number of customers served,  the  number  of  qualified  Ship’s  Servicemen aboard, and the requirements of the commanding officer. 2-1
