Save an Average of 30% or More!
FORT LEE, Va, April 18, 2013 – Outdoor cooking is taking off as spring weather takes hold, and commissaries worldwide have special promotions and products ideally suited for what shoppers look for during May.
"This is a great time of year to clean off the grill and take advantage of the commissaries' great savings on fresh Choice Grade-A beef, pork and chicken," said Joyce Chandler, DeCA acting sales director. "We haven't forgotten that Mother's Day and Memorial Day weekend are special meal occasions during May, and the product selection in our stores worldwide has those covered, too."
DeCA's industry partners – vendors, suppliers and brokers – are collaborating with commissaries in May to offer discounts beyond everyday savings. Overseas stores may have substitute events for certain promotional programs. Customers should check with their store manager to verify when they will be offering these sales events. The following promotions run May 9-29:
"With Memorial Day and Mother's Day, our promotions this time of year go far to express the gratitude we in DeCA and our industry partners have for our military customers," Chandler said. "It's our privilege to provide a commissary benefit that's worth the trip."
