FORT LEE, Va. –- The Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA) will hold its annual worldwide case lot sale at most of its locations during select weekends in September, giving customers their second opportunity this year to save up to 50 percent on paper goods, canned goods, and cleaning products, the commissary operator said.
Called the "World's Biggest Case Lot Sale," the event has been held in September since 2001. The event proved so popular that the sale was expanded in 2004 to two annually, with an additional event in May. Nearly all of DeCA's 273 commissaries participate.
"During our last worldwide sale in May, customer savings topped more than $5 million on more than one million cases of product sold," said DeCA c.e.o. Pat Nixon. "But it's more than that. It's also a community event that gives neighbors a chance to have some fun, and it brings additional business and activity to the installations."
Commissaries have flexibility in choosing which weekend during the designated month to hold their sale and nearly all of DeCA's 273 commissaries participate.
For September, a new feature is being added to the DeCA customer Web site that will assist those locations having their case lot sales on weekends other than the 17th. Shoppers can find out the dates of their nearest case lot sale by accessing the case lot sale link on the front page of www.commissaries.com. All participating commissaries and their tentative sale dates will be listed in the new section.
Each store location will also have a direct link to the store's "spotlighting" page where customers may find case lot sale hours for that particular store as the case lot sale. As the sale date gets a little closer. Many commissaries also list a sampling of items they plan on having at the sale.
