Farm Fresh Ups Military Discount

VIRGINIA BEACH — Farm Fresh Supermarkets [4] here has begun offering a 10% discount on grocery purchases for military personnel on Mondays — a move that coincided with the closure of military commissaries resulting from federal sequestration [5] cuts.

The Department of Defense entered its furlough period earlier this month, with 148 commissaries closing on Mondays through Sept. 30.

Farm Fresh, a division of Supervalu [7], said this week it would extend a 10% discount on the entire grocery bill for active and veteran military who show a military ID on Mondays. Farm Fresh said it would continue a policy of offering a 10% discount on store-brand items to all military members from Tuesday to Sunday.
