The Defense Commissary Agency: There’s more to discover and many more ways to save at



FORT LEE, Va., 2015-3-13 — /EPR Retail News/ — Most of us can appreciate saving a little cash on groceries. Whether single or a family of eight, every dollar helps.

“When service members show their military ID to shop in their commissary it’s their ticket to savings on groceries and household items,” said Gary Frankovich, chief of strategic communications at the Defense Commissary Agency.

Frankovich says some service members may be leaving money on the table and not saving the most they possibly can from their benefit simply by not using features of the commissary’s website,

“If you haven’t been to the commissary website lately you may be surprised at the number of sales, services and programs available to help you keep a little more of that green stuff in your pocket and in your bank account,” he added.

Here are some of the site’s highlights accessible from the menu bar at the top of the homepage.

Under the Shopping tab:

  • Launched the spring of 2014, the commissary Sales and Events page features the current commissary sales flyer. Shoppers can log in to confirm they are authorized commissary shoppers and see pictures of products on sale with sale prices. The flyer changes every two weeks as products go on and off sale. The page also lists new products, and an Exclusive Savings link to coupons and other offers from commissary vendors
  • The Savings Aisle allows visitors to see every product on sale after selecting a specific store from the drop down menu. Medium and large commissaries will have more sale products listed because only products available in all commissaries – small and large – appear on the sales flyer
  • The Commissary Rewards Card section explains the commissary’s hassle-free, online digital coupon program. Authorized shoppers can register their card and add coupons here
  • Other money-saving features include the ability to subscribe to the Commissary Connection e-newsletter, find dates and locations of future Guard and Reserve on-site sales and place an order for Commissary Gift Cards. There’s even a video explaining the Commissary Value Brands – one of the best ways to save in the commissary.

Under the Healthy Living tab:

Other homepage features include a Locations tab that makes it easier for site visitors to find a store. Each commissary has its own pages with hours of operation, telephone numbers, email addresses, directions and a place for the store director to add store news.

“The commissary is a benefit that military members have earned through service to their country and one the Defense Commissary Agency is proud to deliver,” Frankovich said. “There’s more to discover and many more ways to save at”

River Rock Water introduces Kentucky Pure Mineral Water



VANCEBURG, KY, 2020-Oct-1 — /EPR Retail News/ — Some new kids on the block are emerging with a novel mineral water offering out of Kentucky, USA.

The company, River Rock Water LLC, is introducing its trademarked brand, Kentucky Pure Mineral Water. The brand offers exceptional taste and a unique, earth-friendly take on packaging. The company has been testing and developing this brand for five years to ensure the highest quality of “very light mineral” water available to consumers.

Kentucky Pure Mineral Water comes from an ancient aquifer that has been supplying the beautiful plains of Kentucky with its highly nutritional content for millions of years. As a testament to the water quality, 105 of the current 143 Kentucky Derby winners were raised on the nutritional grasses of Kentucky which were fed by these waters. Kentucky Pure lightly balanced mineral water is naturally packed with the optimum amount of minerals and trace elements required to promote biological health.

The founder, Tim LeMaster first drank from the well-head on a really hot day, sweating up a storm, and the water tasted so unique, the first words out of his mouth were, “Sweet Water”! As it turns out, farmers in the region had been saying that for centuries. Kentucky Pure Mineral Water has proven to be a real thirst quencher, satisfying the healthy need for refreshing hydration.

The entrepreneurial team behind Kentucky Pure are long time developers of new products. They have applied that product development experience to create a new development for water containers. Their design is 100% biodegradable, bypassing environmental concerns over the destruction and waste caused by traditional plastic water bottles.
