September 2013 Fort Riley Express Line

  1. 1. Military commissaries worldwide returned to normal operating schedules Aug. 18 when Defense Department furloughs ended early. “This is welcome news for us all,” said Joseph H. Jeu. “We recognize the disruption that furloughs presented to our patrons as far as access to their commissary benefit,” he added. “We also understand the economic hardships many of our employees faced with the pay they lost during the furlough period.” Since July 8, the one-day-per- week furloughs impacted all of DeCA’s more than 14,000 U.S. civilian employees worldwide.

  2. 2. Express Line Page 2 of 2 Store Director’s Scoop With furloughs behind us, the Fort Riley Commissary is back to our regular 7-day-a-week operating schedule. We hope you have noticed that checkout lines are shorter and we have more registers open, especially during peak times. Our goal remains to minimize your wait time as much as possible and save you money every day. Case lot sales were cancelled this year but don’t despair, we have continued to get special buys from our vendors to offer you terrific prices. The difference is there won’t be a big tent and a long wait to get in. Instead you will see savings all month long up and down the aisles, around the perimeter of the store, and in massive display areas. These are the same products you would have seen in the tent, but now you will have weeks to buy what you want rather than only a few days. Come look around and don’t miss any thing. You’re sure to save BIG on all the things you want and need. I also want to tell you about “Scan Down” days that will focus on specific products at absolute dynamite pricing. Our vendors are supporting our community with special deals at 50-percent off on specific days. The first Scan Down sale will begin Sept. 12. With two more planned for later in the month, check our website often for the exact days and items. If you prefer to be notified via e-mail, you can sign up for our Electronic Broadcast by sending Marcie Scipio,, an e- mail and she will add you to our distribution list, which will give you this and other noteworthy information about your Fort Riley Commissary. Our next early closure will be Oct. 14 at 5 p.m. in observance of Columbus Day. As always, “Your Commissary ~ It’s Worth the Trip!” l Delete this text box if not used.
