The Defense Commissary Agency is reminding customers its twice-a-year savings event — the case lot sale — is a few weeks away.

DeCA has deemed September the month for the “world’s biggest case lot sale,” at which customers can save up to 50 percent on popular paper goods, canned goods, cleaning products and more, DeCA officials said. Twice a year — May and September — DeCA offers customers at almost all of its 273 stores the ability to buy case lots.

During May’s sale, customers worldwide saved more than $5 million on more than 1 million cases of products, Pat Nixon, DeCA chief executive officer, stated in a news release.

A new feature for September’s sale is a case lot sale link on DeCA’s Web site, Shoppers can find all participating commissaries’ tentative sale dates there. Many stores also may provide a sample list of planned sale items and sale hours on the “spotlighting” page.

DeCA recommends that customers contact their local stores to verify sale dates, times and items, which may change due to unforeseen circumstances, such as inclement weather or delivery problems. Store phone numbers can be found on the Web page.

DeCA is recommending military retirees near Army and Air Force installations also go to the Web site to check on case lot sales during the Sept. 17-19 weekend. If the sale is scheduled that weekend, DeCA said, it will coincide with the Army and Air Force installation exchanges’ “Still Serving” campaign, for which sales and events also are planned.
