Keesler AFB - Biloxi, MS

 

Wife was in there two weeks ago and said everything seemed as it usually is.

 

Unfortunately for us, the commissary is 25 miles one way from us while Costco & Sam's Club is about 45 miles the other way. We usually only visit each location once a month.

My daughter and her retired Marine husband live less than a mile from one of the north Pendleton gates. They do about half their shopping there, half at Costco.

The only thing they don't get there is one or two "specialty" items from a liquor store in Oceanside.

Commissaries have been going down lately. For weekly shopping we use Wal Mart as the prices are better even with no tax. (The sales tax equals the surcharge at a commissary) For MEat and other large stuff, COSTCO is closer or us and easier. Commissary meat has been going down hill as well as their produce if you do not get there on delivery day.

I have not used the commissary since I retired 10 years ago. Hill AFB is 135 miles from home here in central Utah. Costco is 40 miles away, and Wal Mart is just up the road. As Col. Lou says and I agree, the commissary,s are more expensive than Wal Mart. And that's a shame as they are suppose to be one of our benefits that we earned.
