The Pearl Harbor Commissary is currently scheduled to have a commissary reset from Aug. 21 to 23 in an effort to enhance the shopping experience, according to Eyvinne Umemoto, store director of the Pearl Harbor Commissary.
The commissary is scheduled to be open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Aug. 21 and reopen on Aug. 24 for regular business hours.
However, the dates of the Pearl Harbor Commissary reset are tentative and still subject to change due to weather conditions, according to Umemoto. Previously, the reset had been planned for Aug. 17 through Aug. 19, but it was later rescheduled.
The Hickam Commissary will support commissary patrons during the reset.
The reset is part of the Defense Commissary Agency’s (DeCA) ongoing effort to enhance the shopping experience.
The reset is part of an agency-wide program that systematically changes how products are displayed on shelving throughout a commissary system in order to better serve customer shopping patterns.
The goal is to give commissaries worldwide a more customer-friendly product flow and a layout that is as consistent as possible from location to location, according to Tracie Russ, deputy director of sales.
To make changes easier for customers to follow, stores have aisle layout maps available as well as generic item locators on their Web pages. Store Web pages are under the locations link at http://www.commissaries.com along with store hours, contact information, store news and special customer service features.
