Your Commissary – It's Worth the Trip!
FORT LEE, Va. (January 27, 2014) – Whether it’s nutritious foods for better health, candy treats for that Valentine’s Day sweetheart or all foods in between, commissary patrons will be able to find what they want with plenty of promotional savings in February.
Throughout February, DeCA’s industry partners – vendors, suppliers and brokers – are collaborating with commissaries to offer discounts beyond everyday savings. Overseas stores may have substitute events for certain promotional programs. Also, the Exclusive Savings link on DeCA’s home page (www.commissaries.com) has more coupons and healthy recipes.
Coinciding with Heart Health Month or anytime of the year, commissary patrons can also choose from a variety of “Good For You” foods, which are lighter in calories and more nutritious. These foods are infused with whole grains, fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy, nuts and seeds or significant amounts of important nutrients but have reduced amounts of total fat, saturated fat, sodium and sugar.
Customers should check with their local commissary for details on dates and times for the following promotions:
