Shoppers in Marietta stocked up at a Guard/Reserve on-site sale, a pop-up grocery store that's designed to benefit the military community.

“It’s phenomenal that we’ve got a location with all these great prices,” said Michelle Eads.

The bargains are similar to those at military commissaries. Pam Scheip is a military mother and wife. She said she usually hikes to Fort Benning near the Alabama state line.

“…have to drive 200 miles and have your groceries spoil on the way back,” said Scheip.

Many family members said they’re grateful for a chance to receive help in metro Atlanta.

The military family support center is open Friday, Saturday and again in another three weeks.
