Once the initial novelty of green juices and daily runs wears off and the temptations of chocolate Valentine’s hearts and cream-filled Easter eggs rear their ugly heads, many New Year’s resolution-makers fall off the healthy lifestyle bandwagon and back into old habits.

The Schofield Barracks Commissary encourages shoppers to get a Commissary Rewards Card and see how coupons help them bag even more savings on their grocery bill.
Commissary savings are now being measured against a wider range of retailers that sell groceries, and the comparison confirms the value of the benefit, according to the Defense Commissary Agency’s 2013 price comparison study.
The coordinated opportunity for local Hawaii businesses to have their products sold in Hawaii military commissaries first sprang to life in 1997, and is now in full-flower, as evidenced Oct. 16, as military representatives met with local vendors during the 16th annual American Logistics Association (ALA) Hawaii Show.
Military commissaries worldwide will return to normal operating schedules the week of Aug. 18-24, said the director and CEO of the Defense Commissary Agency.
It’s called “CLICK2 GO,” and commissary shoppers, here, were the first to buy groceries online and pick them up at the store curbside, July 10.
The latest formal Price Comparison Study, issued by the Defense Commissary Agency in June, reports Hawaii’s commissaries lead the world in customer savings.
