Edwards Commissary returns to normal hours Aug.19

commissary
Military commissaries worldwide will return to normal operating schedules the week of Aug. 18-24, said the director and CEO of the Defense Commissary Agency.

The DeCA announcement comes in the wake of the Department of Defense’s Aug. 6 decision to curtail furloughs of its civilian workforce from 11 to six days.

The Edwards Commissary will re-open Mondays again starting Aug. 19 with regular hours being 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

“This is welcome news for us all,” said Joseph H. Jeu. “Our stores will return to their regular schedules after Aug. 17. I encourage our patrons to check the DeCA website for their commissary’s operating hours.

“We recognize the disruption that furloughs presented to our patrons as far as access to their commissary benefit,” he added. “We also understand the economic hardships many of our employees faced with the pay they lost during the furlough period.” Since July 8, the one-day-per-week furloughs impacted all of DeCA’s more than 14,000 U.S. civilian employees worldwide.

With the end of furloughs, Jeu asked that patrons be patient as product delivery schedules return to normal. “We will do everything possible to ensure that our shelves are properly stocked with the products our customers want when they shop,” he said.

“However, there will be a short adjustment period as our stores settle back into their pre-furlough operating and delivery routines.”

Commissary customers can quickly find out about any changes to their local store’s operating schedule by going to www.commissaries.com, clicking on the “Locations” tab, then “Alphabetical Listing” to locate their store, and clicking on “Local Store Information.”
