Your Commissary – It's Worth the Trip!
FORT LEE, Va, March 21, 2013 – April is the Month of the Military Child, and your commissary is celebrating with giveaways and savings for the whole family – pets included!
“Children in military households face unique challenges because of the demands of military life,” said Joyce Chandler, DeCA’s acting sales director.
“So, at the Defense Commissary Agency, we want to acknowledge them and do all we can to provide their families with great values on quality products they can depend upon.”
DeCA’s 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. Customers are asked to check their local commissary for details on dates and times for the following promotions:
“As we honor the Month of the Military Child, don’t miss out on these opportunities to save even more,” Chandler said. “For everyone in the family, the commissary is always worth the trip.”
