This past weekend Briggs sponsored a shopping spree in Fort Riley for the Grand Opening of their new Commissary. SSG James and Amy Holland of Fort Riley had an exciting and profitable Sunday morning at the newly opened Fort Riley Commissary. SSG Holland had registered and was at the commissary on Tuesday night when his name was drawn for a “Shopping Spree”.
Briggs Auto.com had sponsored a “Shopping Spree” which was held on Sunday morning at 9:00am. SSG Holland and Amy had 25 minutes to shop and fill the trunk of a Briggs Auto vehicle. SSG Holland is a tanker from the 2nd BCT and is attached to the “WTB” as he awaits a medical decision. He serves as part of the cadre, also. Amy, his wife, works at the Warren Road CDC and they have two children Tyler 8 and Katelyn 6. The children had gone to their grandparents for Spring Break and weren’t along to assist. The Hollands’ have been at Fort Riley for 5 years and live on post.
It was an exciting time for all in attendance!! Carts were tested to ensure there were no sticky wheels and then they were off. They loaded the first cart with meats and packed them in the trunk. The second cart centered on health and beauty items with Amy’s Tide and important part of the cart. They packed the trunk and left for the third trip. They checked for chicken and other items and then had to finish loading and arranging the trunk. Amy proved to be a great packer.
The next step was to unload the trunk and run all the items through the register. The commissary had a checker and baggers ready to assist. This proved to be the largest purchase that has taken place at the commissary – $2,293.83!! The checker questioned CSM(R) Richard Young, Briggs Military Affairs Director, if he had any coupons to add to the fun. Amy noted she had always wanted to do something like this and they really had fun.
The final step was reloading all the groceries into the Holland’s car-they fit. Thank you, hugs, and handshakes followed a fun morning to conclude the grand opening of the new Fort Riley Commissary.
