FORT LEE, Va. - The Lewis Main and McChord Field commissaries were two of nearly 40 commissaries worldwide named grand prize winners in an industry promotion that delivered extra savings to their military communities while also supporting their local Special Olympics chapters.

As part of their Special Olympics promotion, Procter and Gamble distributed $157 worth of brandSAVER® coupons per customer on coupons for products sold in commissaries worldwide. Shoppers could also clip $572 in digital coupons on related Procter and Gamble products to the Commissary Rewards Card program.

The promotion also benefited Special Olympics as commissaries competed for their slice of $75,000 donated to local chapters. Winning commissaries were determined based on sales of Procter and Gamble products and merchandising displays during the January promotional periods.

Fairchild Air Force Base, near Spokane, was the only other commissary in the state to be named as grand prize winners along with JBLM's two commissaries.

Janice Coleman, store director at the McChord Field Commissary, said the Special Olympics promotion is another shining example of commissaries and industry partnering for a worthy cause.

"Sherry James with (Procter and Gamble) created a fabulous display for the Special Olympics after consulting with the McChord Team on product quantities and movement," Coleman said. "She embraced the project creating an attractive, shoppable display inviting commissary patrons to support the Special Olympics effort. Coupons were available for added patron savings and four shopping sprees were raffled off to the lucky winners."
