Sequestration budget cuts have prompted the Defense Commissary Agency to cancel its September case lot sale worldwide.
Michelle Frost, the agency's chief of promotions and marketing, said in a news release announcing the cancellation:
"Sequestration has forced the commissary to look for cost-saving measures. Even though we have cancelled September case lots, we will offer our customers other sale events more frequently to maximize their savings."
During the semiannual case lot sales, commissaries discount cases of items and sell them in their parking lots. According to the website CommissaryDeals.com, shoppers can find discounts of up to 50 percent off at case lot sales.
As Home Post previously reported, the Defense Commissary Agency announced in May that commissaries will close Mondays between July 8 and September 30 due to sequestration budget cuts.
