Your Commissary – It's Worth the Trip!
FORT LEE, Va. (Dec. 28, 2016) As the calendar flips to 2017, commissary shoppers can easily resolve to save more and eat healthier by not only taking advantage of special in-store promotions and coupons, but also checking out the Defense Commissary Agency's new Nutrition Guide Program.
"Your commissary is always here to help you eat healthier and also save even more on all your favorite name-brand products," said Tracie Russ, DeCA's director of sales. "Speaking of healthy, football parties can easily take a healthy twist: try tacos with ground turkey or white chicken chili that's just as hearty and spicy as any recipe your mom passed along," Russ said.
Throughout January, DeCA's industry partners, vendors, suppliers and brokers are collaborating with commissaries to offer discounts beyond everyday savings. Overseas stores may have substituted events for certain promotional programs. Customers are asked to check their local commissary for details on dates and times for the following promotions:
"The Defense Commissary Agency sends out New Year's wishes to all of our military shoppers to have a healthy, safe and prosperous 2017," Russ said. "Your commissary is always there for the military and their families year-round, providing the very best savings possible. Your commissary is always worth the trip!"
