‘Thank you for your service’
Commissaries worldwide will salute the military community in November with special events and promotions including high-value coupon booklets for free frozen turkeys.
“We’re recognizing our military and their families, and all veterans who have served and sacrificed for our nation,” said Tracie Russ, the Defense Commissary Agency’s sales director. “We’re showing our great appreciation through military veterans’ commemoration ceremonies, Veterans Day holiday weekend sales and our seasonal promotions throughout the month of November.”
One of the month’s biggest promotions is the annual free turkey event worldwide included in high-value coupon booklets. The free turkey promotion coincides with special discounted fresh turkeys available in all stores. Patrons are reminded to check out the online sales flyer or get a copy at the store entrance.
Throughout November, commissary industry partners – vendors, suppliers and brokers – are collaborating with stores to offer discounts beyond everyday savings. Overseas stores may have substitute events for certain promotional programs. Customers are asked to check their local commissary for details on dates and times for the following promotions:
