Most commissary discounts would be eliminated under proposed Defense Department cut

from The Washington Post

The Defense Department has proposed reducing spending by cutting some retirement and other benefits for troops next year, including a $1.4 billion subsidy to commissaries that allows goods to be sold at heavily discounted prices. The Defense Commissary Agency estimates that a family of four saves about $4,509 annually shopping at a commissary rather than a local grocery store, because at the military version of a supermarket, goods are sold at cost plus 5 percent. A single service member saves about $1,553 a year. more
