Commissaries highlight Month of Military Child with savings
Commissaries are observing April, the Month of the Military Child, with giveaways and savings for the entire family. At the Defense Commissary Agency, we do all we can to provide our military children and their families with significant savings on groceries and household items, said Tracie Russ, sales director for the Defense Commissary Agency. With events such as ProCamps and our 5-2-1-0 nutritional message, we recognize the unique challenges our youth experience because of the demands of military life. DeCAs industry partners  vendors, suppliers and brokers  are collaborating with commissaries in April to offer discounts beyond everyday savings. Overseas stores may have substitute events for certain promotional programs. Patrons can also see the Sales Flyer at www.commissaries.com or get a copy at the store entrance. Go to
https://commissaries.com/press_room/press_release/2017/DeCA_19_17.cfm for more details.

Nutrition guide program helps patrons meet health, wellness needs
Since January, patrons worldwide have seen color-coded shelf tags in their commissaries, spotlighting products featuring one or more of five popular nutritional attributes such as low sodium, no-added sugar and high fiber. The labels also highlight organic products. Military service is all about readiness and resilience, and the foods we eat play a big role in that, said Defense Commissary Agency Director and CEO Joseph H. Jeu. By highlighting the products with key nutrient attributes our commissary patrons look for, our nutrition guide program makes shopping much more convenient and effective to help service members and their families meet their health and wellness needs. The NGP is based on U.S. Food and Drug Administration and U.S. Department of Agriculture criteria and standards. DeCA collaborated with key DOD agency and service branch health and wellness experts to align NGP with the Go for Green nutrition education program, which uses traffic light colors to identify food choices in military dining facilities.

Commissary store brand names unveiled
The Defense Commissary Agency has chosen the names Freedoms Choice" and HomeBase" for its private label product assortment. Private label, also known as store brands, will begin appearing on commissary shelves in May. Commissary patrons have been telling us for quite some time that they want to take advantage of the value offered by store brands, but commissaries have not had their own brand until now, said Joseph H. Jeu, DeCA director and CEO. Freedoms Choice will be the commissary brand name for food items and HomeBase for nonfood items such as paper products and other household items. Our private label products will also be equal or lower in price to commercial grocery store brands, he added. For more on DeCAs private label program, go to https://commissaries.com/documents/contact_deca/faqs/transformation.cfm.

Commissaries go green every day
The Defense Commissary Agency is always working diligently to reduce its environmental footprint through recycling, food donations, and offering shoppers environmentally friendly products. In 2015, DeCA stores recycled almost 1,920 tons of plastic, more than 60,000 tons of cardboard and over 108 tons of paper. It has also composted or repurposed almost 6 million pounds of organic material, recycled over 5 million pounds of pallets and another 3 million pounds of things like fats, bones, kitchen grease, metal and wood. DeCA makes it easy for its patrons to get involved with green purchasing. They can purchase reusable shopping bags, organically grown fruits and vegetables, compact fluorescent and LED light bulbs, high-efficiency laundry products, environmentally friendly cleaning products, and products with reduced packaging like paper towels and bathroom tissue without the cardboard tubes. For more, go to https://www.commissaries.com/press_room/press_release/2016/DeCA_21_16.cfm.



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 40 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.
