Hours of Operation

Question Answer

Why can't the commissary be open 24-7?

Overhead and salaries are paid with appropriated funds from a finite budget, so extending hours requires careful study by management to ensure a strong business case and prudent use of taxpayers' money. Commissaries also adjust their hours from time to time in response to changing customer preferences and practices, such as opening later in the morning in order to stay open later in the evening. Commissary expenditures undergo intense scrutiny to ensure prudent use of government funds.
