The NAS JRB commissary is the place where military personnel, retirees and their families can shop for discounted groceries in a safe and secure shopping environment. Authorized patrons purchase items at cost plus a 5-percent surcharge, which covers the costs of building new commissaries and modernizing existing ones. In fact, the NAS JRB commissary, opened in 2011, was built with surcharge dollars. In addition to the full lineup of fresh produce, fresh meats, frozen, chilled and dairy items, the store features a full service deli-bakery and the meat department can provide specialty cuts to order.
Shoppers save an average of more than 30 percent on their purchases compared to commercial prices - savings amounting to thousands of dollars annually. For current savings figures for various groups - single member up to a family of seven - visit www.commissaries.com and look at the Savings page. For hours of operation and store events, visit our store's Web page on www.commissaries.com.
