Shutdown Help For Military Families

Posted: Updated:
Augusta, GA -

The government shutdown is causing a large number of US families to pinch their pennies; many of those families are military families.  Aside from furloughing many government workers, the shutdown has closed down many military resources like on-base commissaries.

Many companies are offering discounts to furloughed workers and military families; the latest is Costco.

Costco of Augusta announced Friday that any current or retired military member with ID can shop at Costco for the rest of the shutdown, even without a Costco membership.
