The cancellation of remaining furlough days by Defense Department means that commissaries worldwide can go back to normal hours after August 17.

The furloughs began July 8 at the rate of one day a week. The sixth and last furlough day for most of the military’s grocery stores will be August 12.

The reduced hours and reduced staffing levels led to longer lines at the checkout, with many customers becoming frustrated at the waiting times and empty shelves.
