SHEPPARD AIR FORCE BASE, Texas – The Sheppard AFB Commissary will be open seven days a week starting June 6, 2022.

The new Monday opening is part of a Defense Commissary Agency pilot program and will offer limited services, such as:

  • Self-checkout registers only
  • Debit/credit card and cash payment only
  • Fresh meat will be available, but no meat cutters will be onsite for special orders
  • Deli/bakery will not be open; pre-made grab-and-go items such as sandwiches and salads will be available

The commissary is providing this pilot to determine how well seven-day shopping will be received by the Sheppard Air Force Base community.

 “We are piloting an extra day of shopping to see if this helps improve the shopping experience for the Sheppard community,” said Gertrude Hunt, Sheppard AFB Commissary store director. “The commissary benefit is a significant boost to military quality of life, and we are exploring various ways like seven-day shopping to help our customers maximize it.”

DeCA’s new program is part of ongoing improvements and convenience the agency is piloting to better serve its customers and improve their benefit. Visit the Sheppard Air Force Base store page or for store hours and more information.
