Martinburg, WV -- The commissary from Andrews Air Force Base sponsored the event, offering military members a substantial savings
as opposed to shopping in the local community. Authorized commissary shoppers such as active-duty military, Guardsmen and Reservists, retirees and their family members took advantage of the sale, saving on everything from meat to diapers.
With bulk items and club packages available, shoppers saved anywhere from 40 to 60 percent, said Rena M. Dial, manager for Andrews Air Force Base commissary.
"It's a great deal for our folks," said Command Chief Master Sgt. John Alderton of the 167th Airlift Wing in Martinsburg, W.Va.
Drawings and giveaways, to include a 32-inch television and gift cards, were also given.
