FORT LEE, Va. — The commissary surcharge, the 5 percent added to every customer’s bill, is not a tax.
That’s just one of several facts about the surcharge that even some of the savviest commissary customers are sometimes surprised to learn.
The Schofield Commissary will close at 4 p.m., this Sunday, May 22, and will be completely closed next Monday and Tuesday, May 23 and May 24, for a total store reset.
Commissaries are offering special savings in May with case lot events and promotions celebrating Cinco de Mayo, Mother’s Day, Military Appreciation Month, Memorial Day and more.
Commissary shoppers who want to save more money in 2016 can do so by taking advantage of special in-store promotions and coupons, according to the Defense Commissary Agency’s director of sales.
Twenty-four years ago, this month, the Defense Commissary Agency officially opened its doors for business around the world.
The Schofield Barracks Commissary has been donating its edible but unsellable foodstuffs — everything from cheese to bread to canned goods and condiments — to the Hawaii Food Bank for several decades.
