Stateside commissary case lot sales return once more

Defense Commissary Agency

FORT LEE, Va. — Back by popular demand are the commissaries’ case lot sales. This time they have a new name, Commissary Customer Appreciation sales, but offer the same savings of 50 percent or more on club pack and full case items.

Fort Huachuca Commissary personnel will conduct a case-lot sale Sept. 19 — 21 inside the commissary during normal business hours. This offers customers an opportunity to stock up on needed items by buying in bulk.

“It’s been nearly two years since our last case lot sale, and we are really excited to bring these back since they are so popular with customers,” said Randy Chandler, the Defense Commissary Agency’s director of sales. “These events can help Families stock up for back to school, and they’re also a great way to get your everyday bulk items at great prices.”

Customers have a variety of products to choose from. The list includes:

* Back-to-school items for all ages, such as trail mix, nuts, fruit bars, 100 percent juice, peanut butter, sports drinks and kids complete meals

* Pet supplies to include bagged and canned food, treats and cat litter

* Pasta sauces, rice and condiments

* Cookies, brownies and pudding

* Canned tuna and chili

* Paper products and cleaning supplies such as bathroom tissue, fabric sheets and laundry detergent.

* Health and beauty care including diapers, wipes, shampoo and conditioner
