  • My friend in GA said hers did too. I am curious to know if the commissary overseas are closed or not. They have little options over there and shopping in the economy gets to be pricey, especially if you aren't getting a paycheck.

  • I don't know because I went to ours yesterday but they hadn't restocked meat and produce. Usually it's fully stocked on Mondays. The bagger said they wouldn't know until today. I think they were trying to prevent a rush rush situation.

  • That's not good. Where else can you shop? Is it more expensive than the commissary?

  • Overseas commissaries will stay open from what I know. Ours is open still, along with the BX. I am assuming because we don't really have many options.

  • My son is stationed in Pensacola and he said theirs closed down today. They had a few hours to shop before it was closed and he said it was PACKED!
    Also, the base exchange closed down.

  • Ours at Ellsworth AFB in South Dakota had closed down as well. We don't usually shop there, so it didn't affect us directly.
