What is a Back-to-School Sidewalk Sale?
This sales event, which we’re holding in lieu of our annual Commissary Customer Appreciation Case Lot Sale, is kicking off now! Almost all commissaries worldwide will hold a Back-to-School Sidewalk Sale on select dates from the beginning of August through the end of October.
What products will be available?
These sidewalk sales will focus on the products you need to start your student’s school year off right by fixing family breakfasts, fresh-packed school lunches and after-school snacks for children.
“Eating fruits, vegetables, lean meats, dairy products and whole grains can be part of building healthy eating patterns, according to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.”
-Deborah Harris, Defense Commissary Agency Dietitian
They may also offer products such as club packs, cases of breakfast cereals, bottled water and more.
“Our commissaries offer lots of products in all categories that fit into a school kid’s day.”
-Tracie Russ, Director of Sales, Defense Commissary Agency
