FORT LEE, Va. – Commissary patrons stateside can stock up on their favorite items at significant savings during the Defense Commissary Agency’s Military Appreciation Month Sidewalk Sale event in May.
“This is our way of saying ‘thank you’ to our patrons for their service and sacrifice,” said Bonita Moffett, DeCA’s director of sales. “These U.S. sidewalk sales give our military members and their families a chance to realize extra savings during this military recognition month. We care and you save!”
Commissaries stateside only will hold their sidewalk sale, with a few exceptions, sometime between April 29 and May 31. The sales coincide with May’s Military Appreciation Month.
Weather permitting, most commissaries will have one event – a two- or three-day outdoor weekend sidewalk sale – featuring extra savings on variety of everyday items. Event dates are subject to change, so patrons are encouraged to check their store’s web page for sale dates and hours or talk to their store manager for more details or updates.
Customers have a variety of options to choose from. Sale items may include products in the following categories: Snacks, Beverages, Pet Food, International Foods, Baking Goods, Canned Goods, Non-Food Items, and Health and Beauty Products.
“This is another way the commissary brings quality and savings together for our military families,” Moffett added.
In accordance with DOD policy regarding COVID-19 safety protocols, commissary customers and employees are required to wear masks at sidewalk sale events.
