While on my friend Susanna’s site Military Duty Stations I came across a funny post she and Abby from Steals and Deals did called Commissary Utopia in which they discussed what their dream commissary would consist of.
It got me to thinking , if I had my way what changes would I make to the commissary to make it better and more efficient. Some of my ideas are totally dreamworthy and the majority are real ideas that could be implemented.
1. I have been to several commissaries that weren’t open on Mondays.
Do we not need to grocery shop on a Monday? Commissaries should be open everyday of the week just like any other grocery store.
2. The Hours:
What is with these Early bird hours? If you are going to let the early birds in let the 15+ item folks in also .
3. The Electronic Voice Line Monitor
That thing sometimes confuses me…Could you make sure it works like it’s supposed to so that I don’t have Revolutionary War vets yelling at me for not knowing when to go to a register.
Don’t raise the prices on stuff you know I need on a weekly basis for these crumb snatcher kids of mine and then say the prices aren’t raised. Commissary brand Poptarts tare usually $1.59 and then happen to be $2.10 coincidentally on the 1st and the 15th. Raise the prices on stuff I don’t need often.
5. The Lines
How about opening some more registers when the line goes back to the milk section?
This maybe not be commissary wide but in Hawaii I want two years without ever being able to get ripe bananas !
I am not afraid to say that screaming kids makes my eye start twitching ! My solution a play area in the commissary with childcare would be perfect!
Seriously I am extremely grateful for the commissary but like anywhere else something could always be better!
What ideas would you love to see in your version of “The Perfect Commissary”?
