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.

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.
