We all know with the recent popularity of “extreme couponers” most folks don’t want to be considered what has infamously become known as “shelf clearers”.

Special orders are not only useful for bulk purchases, but in most instances allow those overseas to order a product from a larger commissary that your smaller commissary may not carry.
