It’s not fun in the sun. Summer is over. The cooler weather is bringing fun in the leaves. It is already November and that means lots of changes. Leaves are changing while savings are heating up. There are so many exciting things happening at your commissary. Your commissary team is hard at work judging your submissions for this year’s Halloween Costume Contest. Other teams are negotiating hard to get you the best savings on your favorite brands (how about those 49cent turkeys?). I’m busy writing this blog … but that’s just one of my many duties. Reset teams are scouring the country to provide your stores with new shelves and new product. Then there is the ecommerce team moving at record pace to expand CLICK2GO to more and more commissaries. Your commissary sure does come to life in the fall.
October was energy action month and your commissary took action to cut energy costs and save you money. We put competitive prices on LED bulbs and high-efficiency detergents. We also took additional steps to replace old-school cleaning products with high-efficiency cleaning products in our stores. Among these fall adventures are the winners of “Best Commissary Award.” Fort Bliss won best superstore while Travis Air Force Base came in second in that category. The “Best Small Commissary Overseas” went to Cairo; Hohenfels took second in that category. The CLICK2GO expansion has led to Fort Belvoir being the latest commissary to offer mobile delivery. The curb-side pick-up service will expand to Marine Corps Base Quantico in December and McGuire Air Force base in March. We continue to expand our partnerships with AAFES and NEX. This includes coupons for great savings as we work together to create a unified shopping experience.
While summer celebrations are over, our fall celebrations are just beginning. By looking out for more fall-themed events and promotions. Those 49-cent turkeys are just the beginning. Who knows what kind of awesome deals we will bring you in the months to come. Well, we know but we aren’t telling yet. When winter comes around, we will be making an even bigger splash in your wallet. While you are at it, be sure to check out our dietician-approved holiday recipes at https://www.commissaries.com/recipes/all-recipes?field_recipe_category_target_id%5B11%5D=11&title=&sort_by=created&items_per_page=9.
