FORT LEE, Va., 2015-4-14 — /EPR Retail News/ — Mention case lot sales and commissary patrons start lining up for the opportunity to save up to 50 percent or more on club-pack and full-case items.
Known as the Commissary Customer Appreciation Case Lot Sale, the springtime version of this twice-yearly event will unfold at stateside stores, each hosting their individual two- or three-day case lot sale during a weekend scheduled sometime from mid-April to the end of June.
Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico will also participate in these sales. Commissaries in Europe and the Pacific, depending on the location, may have substitute events such as sidewalk sales. “Commissary Customer Appreciation Sales offer patrons a chance to load up on a variety of grocery and household items at tremendous savings,” said Tracie Russ, Defense Commissary Agency sales director. “For some items we have savings that even approach 60 percent, making these sales well worth the trip!”
Customers have a variety of options to choose from. The list includes the following product categories:
- Fruit snacks, pudding snack packs, granola bars, fruit bars, pastries, peanut butter and popcorn
- Water and flavored water, teas, juices, juice mixes, sodas, sports drinks and breakfast drinks
- Frozen pizza and sausage links
