Your Commissary – It's Worth the Trip!
FORT LEE, Va. (October 27, 2016) Commissaries worldwide are featuring special promotions in November including high-value coupon booklets for free frozen turkeys that help recognize the sacrifices of military service.
"Our military families face hardships each and every day, whether it is another deployment separating families, trying to make ends meet on a tight budget, or being stationed overseas far away from home," said Tracie Russ, the Defense Commissary Agency's sales director.
"This November we recognize all our military – active duty, Guard and Reserve and retirees – and their family members. And to all the war veterans who have fought for our freedom and the right to live in a free democracy in America," she added. "The commissaries will be showing their thanks through military veterans' commemoration ceremonies, Veterans Day holiday weekend sales and our seasonal promotions throughout November."
One of the month's biggest promotions is the annual free turkey event worldwide included in high-value coupon booklets. The free turkey promotion coincides with special discounted fresh turkeys available in all stores. Patrons are reminded to check out the sales flyer or get a copy at the store entrance.
Throughout November, the commissary's industry partners – vendors, suppliers and brokers – are collaborating with stores 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:
"Don't forget to check out our sales flyer. There you will find special Deals of the Week listed on page two. Also you will find more promotional items to meet all your holiday needs," Russ said. "Be sure to stock up now!"
