SIX DAY SALES OPERATION AT DESIGNATED NAVY COMMISSARY STORES

A. NAVOP Z-39

1. REFERENCE A ANNOUNCED A PLAN TO EXTEND THE SALES HOURS IN SEVERAL OF OUR MOST HEAVILY IMPACTED COMMISSARY STORES. AFTER A YEAR’S TEST, IT HAS BEEN DETERMINED THAT EXTENSION OF OPERATING HOURS HAS PROVIDED SUBSTANTIAL RELIEF FROM OVERCROWDING.

2. TO FURTHER REDUCE CONGESTION AND TO IMPROVE LEVELS OF SERVICE TO OUR AUTHORIZED PATRONS, COMNAVSUPSYSCOM HAS RECOMMENDED IMPLEMENTATION OF A SIX DAY SALES WEEK AT SEVEN COMMISSARY STORES IN OUR RESALE SYSTEM. IN RECOGNITION OF THE EXTREME IMPORTANCE OF THESE PERSONNEL SUPPORT ACTIVITIES TO AN ALL VOLUNTEER FORCE, I HAVE APPROVED THIS RECOMMENDATION. EFFECTIVE IN DECEMBER 1971, COMMISSARY STORES AT LITTLE CREEK, NORFOLK, SAN DIEGO, MIRAMAR, LONG BEACH, MOFFETT FIELD AND PEARL HARBOR WILL BE INCLUDED IN THIS PROGRAM. THESE COMMISSARY STORES REPRESENT OUR LARGEST SALES OUTLETS AND ARE LOCATED IN AREAS OF HIGH CONCENTRATION OF NAVY FAMILIES.

3. SUBJECT TO THE AVAILABILITY OF FURTHER FUNDING RESOURCES, IT IS ENVISIONED THAT ADDITIONAL STORES WILL BE INCLUDED IN THIS PROGRAM IN THE FUTURE. IT IS ANTICIPATED THAT THIS EXTRA SALES DAY WILL MAKE COMMISSARY STORE SHOPPING EASIER AND MORE PLEASANT FOR NAVY MEMBERS AND THEIR DEPENDENTS. E. R. ZUMWALT, JR., ADMIRAL, U.S. NAVY, CHIEF OF NAVAL OPERATIONS.
