FORT LEE, Va. — The holidays are right around the corner, and special in-store promotions make the commissary the place to go to save on holiday groceries, according to an official at the Defense Commissary Agency.
“We’ve got some great promotions lined up for the holiday season,” said Randy Chandler, DeCA sales director. “Customers will find great savings and quality products for holiday entertainment and meal needs, thanks to our industry partners. They might even sneak a peek at a jolly old man in a red suit.”
Chandler also reminds patrons that the holiday season is a perfect opportunity to consider giving the gift of groceries through Commissary Gift Cards.
“Our gift cards are a quick and easy way to spread holiday cheer to military service members and their family members around the world,” he said. “Anyone can purchase them online through www.commissaries.com, or at a commissary for authorized shoppers to use.”
Manager’s specials and power buys provide big savings every day during the holiday season in commissaries worldwide. Overseas stores may have substitute events for certain promotional programs, and customers should check their local commissary for details on dates and times for their promotions.
Sales items through Dec. 18 include:
• Among manager’s specials for pet owners are Del Monte’s dog snacks such as Pup-Peroni Beef Sticks, Beef n’ Cheese Sausages, Milk-Bone dog biscuits and Kibble n’ Bits dry dog food.
• For young families, there are big savings on Huggies diapers, All® detergent, Snuggle dryer sheets and Huggies Baby Wipes.
• For those who like to bake, the commissary is offering super savings on Duncan Hines’ cake mixes and brownie mixes; Gold Medal flour, Land O’Lakes butter and General Mills crescent rolls, biscuits and pie crusts.
• For holiday meals there’s Kraft Stove Top Stuffing; Del Monte canned green beans, Ocean Spray cranberry juice and more.
“Your commissary is worth the trip for all your holiday baking and cooking needs,” Chandler said. “We at the Defense Commissary Agency wish a very happy, healthy and safe holiday season for all our patrons around the world.”
