Sembach Commissary



8 years, 6 months ago

There is also a Commissary at Sembach, for those of us who live out that way. It was recently refurbished and the staff there are great. It may be smaller than the other two, but sometimes good customer service makes up for that. If you want something and they dont have it, they will get it in. Anything that can be found at Vogelweh, can be brought into the Sembach store.

Some of us who had to take housing in the Sembach school area prefer to support our local Commissary, rather than drive out to Vogelweh or Ramstein.

I work out at Sembach Middle School and our son attends the Elementary School there, so it works out well for me to drop in after work when I need something.

I can't tell you anything about the commissaries in the U.S. But, the commissaries here are somewhat the same when compared to each other. The Ramstein commissary is larger than Vogelweh. Sembach seems to be a little smaller than Vogelweh. The prices are supposed to be the same, but I have (as well as others) noticed that prices do vary between the commissaries. I inquired about the price discrepancies and the answer I got from DeCA is that the prices are the same unless there is an item on sale at one commy that is not on sale at another.


Regarding prices, my wife loves the prices. The commy is one thing she is going to miss when we go stateside.

I know this did not answer your question, exactly, but it should give you some idea.

They are pretty much the same the meats are not frozen in the states as they can get more product produced fresh versus having it shipped to Germany where you can freeze food and still sale it past the expiration date

Has anyone noticed lately any of their usual buys at the commissary are disappearing off the shelves? One week it was International Delight creamer, then they were out so I had to switch to another brand, now they're out of that too. Now it's nonfat plain yogurt. I usually buy the big tub because I use them for breakfast spinach smoothies and they're out of that too, with no other brand substitute. And little smokies for like a potluck or BBQ, yeah they don't sell those anymore either. What the fffff.

This is the place to go for your comments, if you want to get some action. Good luck.

But, yes, I have noticed that the stocked items are changing on an unusually odd basis.

Well, I filed a complaint. Weird as soon as I started typing about my initial issue I couldn't stop complaining about everything else, like how there's only a few lanes open (including express lanes) at all times and there's never a employee around if you have a question. But eh... I guess beggars can't be choosers.

Considering where we are, I think the commy does a pretty good job of keeping things on the shelf. It's the employees that leave a bit to be desired. But, I have noticed that a lot of times, when Germans are working in positions that would normally be filled by Americans, they are like cranky old people.
