Your Commissary – It's Worth the Trip!
By Sallie Cauthers, DeCA marketing and mass communications specialist
FORT LEE, Va. – Holiday savings on top of everyday low prices are plentiful in December for commissary customers, said the Defense Commissary Agency’s sales director.
“Any time of the year our customers know to make their commissary their first shopping stop if they want to enjoy the savings they’ve earned,” said Chris Burns, sales director. “And, during the holidays, they will see shelves stocked with discounted groceries and other household products to make this time of year even merrier.”
Throughout December, DeCA’s industry partners will host many in-store promotions and provide extra savings focused on the holiday season. Overseas stores may have substitute events for certain promotional programs. Customers are asked to check their local commissary for the following super sales events:
“Our commissary staff and industry partners wish all our customers a very happy, safe holiday season!” Burns said. “We hope you enjoy your time with your families, and remember commissaries can also help you save on New Year’s Eve party goodies.”
