September Commissary Remote Location Sales

Last month, I did a post on the Commissary’s special sales that they do at locations that are away from regular Commissaries.  DECA (Defense Commissary Agency) calls them on-site sales, and this sparked some debate.  One could argue that an “on-site” sale was on the site of a Commissary, and that properly these remote sales are “off-site.”  I can see both sides of the point and I’ve decided to call them “remote location” sales to clear up any confusion.

During these special events, a commissary will load up a truck (or several) will a variety of merchandise and set up a mini-commissary at a location that is far away from the regular commissary.  These events are designed to help Reserve, National Guard and Retirees use their commissary benefits without having to travel great distances.  To find out more information about each event, look at the DECA Guard and Reserve Sales page, then click through to the sponsoring commissary location.  Please call to verify all information before you travel!

    When will the remote commissary be in the Redmond, Oregon area. Is there a Web site where I can check the schedule?
