Commissary case lot sales to resume in August

RICHMOND, VA. — Commissary case lot sales are returning, announced Defense Commissary Agency director Joseph Jeu.

Jeu spoke at a commissary round table meeting of the American Logistics Association, whose members include manufacturers and distributors of products sold in commissaries, exchanges and other retail outlets on military bases.

The sales will resume this year from mid-August through September, said DeCA spokesman Kevin Robinson.

Until they were discontinued for budget reasons, the sales were held in May and September, generally in extra space outside the commissary. Larger items such as club packs helped offer savings over and above the regular savings that average about 30 percent.

The sales are “back by popular demand,” Jeu said, noting that customers as well as members of industry have asked for them.

Running two case lot sales in a year worldwide costs DeCA about $900,000. Industry has agreed to provide more support to reduce the costs for DeCA, Robinson said.
