Early Bird Shoppin??

I was just checking out Deca's website and see that our Comm offers early bird shopping hours. I have never heard of these before and was wondering if anyone else could explain it to me? I wonder if it's less crowded then.....this base is small as far as AD, but the retirees are all over the place! I have had two older men stop and ask if we were new to the base (we are) because he had not seen me there shopping before!! Talk about knowing everyone and their business!!! haha

Thanks for the help ladies!

My last base was Scott AFB, IL- they had early birc shopping. It was mainly for people in uniform or elderly to go in and get a few items- our commissary didnt actually open until 9- but teh early bird opened at 7- I would get in there about 8 am and by the time it was 9 I would have a cart full of things and check out. We are now here at Yokota- and they open at 9 am on the dot- not a minute before.

i thought early bird shopping was for 15 items or less. Does it vary from base to base? So far, i've only been to 1 commissary.

Our early bird here and in Germany meant only self-checkout lines were open. You could come in and shop and do self-checkout no matter how many items you had. I go in during early bird hours every once in a while, but by the time I am ready to check out it is always regular store hours I am slow though!

Thanks for all the help! I even asked my hubby, who is SF and even he had no idea the Comm was open. Especially on a base this small..... I will ask them next time I am in to see what the rules are here!

Early Bird Shopping at our commissary means shopping for handicapped and less than 15 items only. I like to go there early and get everything together and right when they open for regular shopping I go to the check out. No lines
