LOS ANGELES AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. --
Los Angeles Air Force Base celebrated the reopening of the commissary after completing a renovation project on July 3.
The upgrade, which came just in time for the Independence Day weekend, included a new interior design featuring wider aisles, and a dedicated sushi counter. The change also includes two separate express lines, making it easier for customers to check out without a long wait. As customers browsed the aisles, they were impressed with all the new changes.
The 4th of July weekend was a great time for staff to remind members that commissaries are the oldest military resale benefit. The first commissaries opened in 1825 when enlisted men and officers received the same privileges. Almost 100 years later, the benefit still exists to help service members and their families improve their quality of life by delivering significant savings on groceries.”
“Much has changed since then, but we wanted to let military members to know that commissaries are still supporting military members and their families,” said Jeanne Halterman, Defense Commissary Agency-Los Angeles store director.
As families prepared to celebrate fireworks and barbeques over the Independence Day holiday, the newly remodeled facility is honored to give their customers the best shopping experience and are thrilled the store was completed by the holiday weekend.
