Veterans Canteen Service Business Lines

Barber & Beautician Services

In most VA medical centers, we provide barber services; some have barber/beauty shops. Many smaller facilities that do not have barber shops have ward service available for patient haircuts.

Floral Services

We operate wire-flower services through Phillips Flower Service. Ordering flowers from all canteens is possible for shipping anywhere in the United States by calling the Special Order Call Center at 1-800-664-8258 from the Special Order Kiosk at the canteen or from any telephone.

Laundry & Dry Cleaning Services

At many of our locations, we offer laundry and dry cleaning services, which are available for eligible customers.

Concessionaire Sales

We have many local and national concessionaire agreements with vendors that are contracted to hold two-day sales events throughout the year. They include unique products that are not normally stocked in our stores. Examples of some of the products sold at these sales are: Books; Fine 10 KT and 14 KT Gold Jewelry; Paintings/Prints; Furniture; Local Sports Memorabilia, and Crafts.

Prepaid Calling Cards

We sell Prepaid Calling Cards, available at discounted prices for as little as 4 cents per minute. These products make excellent gifts for anyone (college or high schools students, when traveling, everyday use from home or away from home, for emergencies.)

Questions and comments regarding special order and concessionaire services may be directed to Ms. Michelle Forbes at Michelle.Forbes@va.gov.
