8/18/2009 - FORT LEE, Va.  -- Commissary customers can save 30 percent or more on their purchases every day, but in September they can save even more by shopping at a worldwide case lot sale in their community. 

As seen in the past, the Defense Commissary Agency's worldwide case lot sale promises record numbers of customers taking advantage of savings of 50 percent or more on bulk-sized products. These items range from canned goods, beverages, toilet paper, paper towels, produce, fresh meat, seafood, pet supplies, cleaning and laundry products, and more. 

"Commissaries offer the military and their families great ways to extend their purchasing power through the case lot sales we hold in May and September," said DeCA Director and CEO Philip E. Sakowitz Jr. "It helps them take advantage of their commissary benefit even more." 

The products at these events are normally seen stretched out in a section of a commissary parking lot or inside a store warehouse. Some 50 to 60 percent of the items are sold in "club pack" product assortments similar to the oversized or multiple products sold at commercial warehouse club outlets. 

"Case lot sales give our patrons even more savings beyond our normal great prices," said Charlie Dowlen, DeCA promotions manager. "With children going back to school, families are looking for an opportunity to save money. Case lot sales provide this opportunity." 

There are 404 items available for this sale, and Dowlen expects the larger commissaries stateside will offer an additional 100 or more items. Although smaller commissaries in the United States and those on installations overseas will carry a more limited selection, all stores will offer customers the massive savings associated with these events, he added. 

Most commissaries hold case lot sales but schedule them on different weekends throughout September. To find out when your commissary is hosting a sale, go to the special case lot sale Web page at 

Customers who live in regions with multiple commissaries can use the DeCA Web site for information on all sales in their area.
