The NAS JRB Commissary is the place where military personnel, retirees and their families enjoy their commissary benefit. Authorized patrons can purchase groceries at cost plus a 5 percent surcharge, which covers the costs of building new commissaries and modernizing existing ones. As a result, commissary shoppers save on their purchases, compared with commercial prices — savings amounting to thousands of dollars annually, depending on individual shopping habits.
This NAS JRB commissary, opened in 2011, was built with surcharge dollars. In addition to a full lineup of fresh produce, fresh meats and frozen, chilled and dairy items, the store features a full-service deli-bakery, and the meat department can provide specialty cuts to order.
