FORT LEE, Va. - This November, the Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA) wants to be the holiday food headquarters for their customers, offering everything they need for their festive meals.

"Whether it is the best-priced, high-quality turkeys, or the ingredients for those home-baked pies and cakes made just like your grandmother used to, we have what you need to put a joyous, tasty spin on your holiday celebrations," said Bonita Moffett, DeCA's director of sales. "We also make it very convenient for our patrons by offering a variety of party platters from our deli and produce departments.

"And don't forget the Commissary Gift Card that anyone can purchase to give the ultimate 'Gift of Groceries' to any authorized patron worldwide."

Throughout November, DeCA's industry partners - vendors, suppliers and brokers - are collaborating with commissaries to offer discounts beyond everyday savings. Overseas stores may have substitute events for certain promotional programs.

Customers are asked to check our website, and their local commissary for details on dates and times for the following promotions:

  • Deli Party Platters - Bountiful meat and cheese platters can be ordered several ways: contact the deli manager when shopping at the commissary, and they will take your order or you can go online to the Commissary CLICK2GO web page on to order.
  • Produce Gifts. Red Robin Plant Promotion (stateside only including Alaska and Hawaii) featuring poinsettias, festive plants and décor. Promotion offered mid-November through mid-December.
  • Fresh fruit and vegetable party trays may be ordered through your produce manager while shopping as well as calling the store and being connected to the produce department.
  • World Pear Day is Dec. 5. From Nov. 29 to Dec. 5 (stateside only) super low prices on pears. Pair pears with blue cheese and crispy crackers.
  • A Doorbuster Sale is being offered by commissary produce Nov. 19-24, offering significant savings on potatoes, sweet potatoes, onions and fresh cranberries (stateside only including Alaska and Hawaii).

  • Holiday Special Orders. Fill out the "Special Order" form on for all your holiday and family gathering needs. Be sure to plan ahead to allow for shipment lead times on your favorite holiday products. Some restrictions may apply at overseas commissaries. Contact your store for specific availability.
