8/12/2013 - CANNON AIR FORCE BASE, N.M. -- According a statement by the Defense Commissary Agency, military commissaries worldwide, to include the commissary at Cannon Air Force Base, N.M., are scheduled to resume pre-furlough hours of operation beginning the week of Aug. 18 through 24.

The DeCA announcement comes on the heels of the Aug. 6 Department of Defense decision to curtail furloughs of its civilian workforce from 11 to six days.

"This is welcome news for us all," said Joesph Jeu, DeCA director and CEO. "Our stores will return to their regular schedules after Aug. 17. I encourage our patrons to check the DeCA website for their commissary's operating hours."

"We recognize the disruption that furloughs presented to our patrons as far as access to their commissary benefit," he continued. "We also understand the economic hardships many of our employees faced with the pay they lost during the furlough period."

Since July 8, the one-day-per-week furloughs impacted all of DeCA's more than 14,000 U.S. civilian employees worldwide.

"With the curtailment of furloughs approaching, Jeu asked that patrons be patient as product delivery schedules return to normal.

"We will do everything possible to ensure that our shelves are properly stocked with the products our customers want when they shop," he said. "However, there will be a short adjustment period as our stores settle back into their pre-furlough operating and delivery routines."

Commissary customers can quickly find out about any changes to their local store's operating schedule by going to, clicking on the "Locations" tab, then "Alphabetical Listing" to locate their store, and clicking on "Local Store Information."
