This is not allowed.

You, and the person who helps you shop, would get into trouble. At the very least, the person who assists you with this, would lose their privilege to shop at the commissary.

Lots of assuming going on. Maybe she just needs a ride!

Where is the assumption in this?

Seems pretty clear to me that she wants to shop without having privileges.

I did not know this. I did not know there is a French commissary. Are you messin' with me? If so, good one. I have never heard mention of a French commissary, before.

If not, where is the French commissary? I'd guess the food would be better and fresher.

But, either way, in order to shop at said French Commy, you would need to have access to where it is located, as well as privileges to shop.

The OP seems to be missing either access to the area, or privileges, or both.

As for the intent of the original post of the thread starter, yes I was messing with you. However there is a French commissary. Actaully two. One is near Stuttgart and the other was or still might be in K-Town. I was going to go check it but I totally lost interest after awhile and jsut now remembered that I'd like to look into it.

I would have loved to have known about it. One thing that I continually repeat when people ask me about my experience and time in Germany, it is that German food is not exactly on the top of my list. Not to say that there isn't good German food. I'm just saying that one can only eat so much schnitzel and bratwurst. We went to France many times while I was over there, and comparatively speaking, the French food was much better than German food.

French troops left Germany about 15 years ago and I don't believe any of their commissaries (Economats) are still in existence. I know for sure the one in Kaiserslautern is gone. Used to be along Mainzerstrasse somewhere but not on the main garrison, which is the present-day PRE-Park. My wife told me about the one in the Stuttgart area (Pforzheim maybe?) since her dad was stationed in Stuttgart way back when.

That's right. I just heard to one near STR is closing soon as well.

Oh, yeah, I read someone else's post, there was a very small French Commissary in Zweibrucken.  Been there, too.  :)

There was a French Commissary near Landstuhl in the 70s.  You had to apply to some office (I forget who) to get access to the Commissary which seemed to take forever.  Also, there was a French Mess in Zweibrucken.  I am sure long gone by now.  I visited both places!
