DeCA STORES SET RECORD FOR PAPER, PLASTIC, CARDBOARD RECYCLING

The numbers are in: Military commissaries surpassed their fiscal 2015 environmental goals for recycling and diverting waste from landfills. The Defense Commissary Agency achieved an 83 percent recycling efficiency rate, the highest in the agencys history, said Randy Eller, deputy director of DeCAs logistics directorate. Along the way, DeCA recycled more than 60,000 tons of cardboard, 1,900 tons of plastic, and more than 108 tons of paper. Adding to the agencys environmental successes were the stores which actually reached the net zero landmark. Net zero waste is a whole systems effort, ideally resulting in no waste. Seven stores achieved net zero status through organic contracts which turn all organic material into compost. The stores include four commissaries in Hawaii  Marine Corps Base Kaneohe Bay, Naval Station Pearl Harbor, Hickam Air Force Base and Schofield Barracks  plus the stores at McChord Air Force Base and Fort Lewis in Washington, and Los Angeles Air Force Base in California.


Commissary Value Brands grow to nearly 500 items
Six months into the start of the Commissary Value Brands program, patrons now have nearly 500 products available at savings comparable to low-cost private label items in commercial stores. Since the emergence of the Value Brands signature orange label in December, the Defense Commissary Agency has elevated the savings program from about 100 products in 33 categories to almost 500 items in 54 categories. The Value Brands lineup includes beverages such as coffee, soft drinks and juices; dairy products like several cheeses, butter, canned and powdered milk; lunch meats, canned tuna and salmon; canned and frozen vegetables; canned fruit and soup; hot and cold cereals; bread; dry pasta and rice; pizza and entrees; peanut butter, jelly, honey and condiments; ice cream; cleaning supplies, disposable bags, laundry bleach and paper towels; pet foods; batteries; health and beauty care and more. DeCAs criteria for Value Brands is simple: DeCAs prices are guaranteed to be consistently equal to or lower than comparable store brand and private label products downtown.

Military commissaries date back to the 1860s:
Fact. Although DeCA was formed in 1991, the modern era of sales commissaries actually began in 1867. It was then that enlisted men received the same at-cost purchasing privileges officers had already enjoyed for four decades. From the start, commissaries were meant to allow the Army to "care for its own." The stores provided wholesome food beyond official rations, and the savings supplemented military pay.

Baggers are commissary employees:
Fiction. Baggers are not commissary employees, and are paid solely by tips from commissary patrons in exchange for bagging and carryout services. Baggers are self-employed and work under a license agreement with an installation commander.

While shopping in the commissary please come and visit the Deli and order your cakes, meat trays and sushi trays.

We have Fruit and Veggie Trays available in the Produce Dept.

The McGuire AFB Commissary has 16 regular registers, 8 self checkout registers which 4 of them are for 15 items or fewer and 4 are carousel styles which are 16-25 items or fewer.

The McGuire Commissary Deli/Bakery Dept is selling Rotisserie Chickens and a variety of chicken wings, so come on out and enjoy some of our juicy, well seasoned and affordable rotisserie products.

McGuire AFB Commissary is offering gift cards. These vouchers are available in $25 denominations. Anyone may acquire gift cards; however, only commissary authorized patrons may redeem them. Cards are available at commissary customer service areas, cash offices and from cashiers at full-service checkout lanes. There is no limit on the number of vouchers someone can purchase. But for large purchases of more than $1,000 in gift cards at a time, you must notify the store at least one week in advance. This allows commissaries to maintain enough gift cards for other customers. No additional fees will be added to the cost of purchasing or redeeming the gift cards.

Store News

Commissaries announce coupon policy changes

Effective May 1, 2012 the Defense Commissary Agency has changed how its stores handle coupons and product returns without receipts, among other things, as the agency enacts customer service policy changes to protect the commissary benefit. The average coupon user might not notice the policy changes because they are aimed at preventing possible misuse of the commissary benefit  primarily using coupons to get large amounts of cash back, said Joseph H. Jeu, DeCA director and CEO. Commissary shoppers are big users of coupons, as evidenced by DeCAs consistent ranking among the top 10 grocery retailers in coupon redemptions over the past several years. Commissaries welcome coupon usage, and to acquaint customers with the changes in the coupon acceptance policy, it has been posted on the agencys website at http://www.commissaries.com/inside_deca/publications/directives/DeCAD40_6_PC_3.pdf and on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/YourCommissary.

Commissary Rewards Card observes first anniversary with mobile app
On Aug. 8 the Defense Commissary Agency will observe the first anniversary of the Commissary Rewards Card. To coincide with this milestone, a mobile application will be available for patrons using the Apple iPhone. This mobile application can be found in the app store on all iPhones and iPads, allowing patrons the ability to access their rewards card account, select coupons and, review clipped, redeemed and expired coupons. The application also allows patrons to locate commissaries and obtain specific store information such as phone number and address. An Android app is planned for fiscal year 2014. Card users will also see options to receive alerts based on their purchases, reminders of clipped coupons awaiting redemption or expiration, and notices when new coupons are available.
