    Default TDCJ Commissary List

    Does anyone have a commissary list with the prices? If not, do you know how I can get one?

    Great, at least that would give me an idea of the cost of things. Can you email me copy?

    Just a note: What is listed on commissary varies by unit and all items are subject to availability.

    My husband has been to 6 units and we notice that the items vary.

    At one unit they sold handkerchiefs and he purchased it but at another unit they thought it was contraband. Why they keep their commissary receipts for some things, or at least him, to show proof of purchase.

    The unit he is at now sells fans and radios while at transfer units they don't sell those but they do at ID Units and some private prisons. The annoying thing is sunblock--they sell it but its never on stock and "always" on the way. Yeah....not happening.

    Very interesting 6 units of commissary purchase.

    Yes, my son wrote me that he couldn't buy a fan, radio, etc. while going through intake but could once he was assigned to a unit. He always kept his commissary receipts in county jail because they did the same things. I went round and round with Montgomery County Jail about contact lens solution. I was told they sold it in the commissary, but it wasn't on the list. My son finally wrote a grievance asking for the number to order it and how much it was. They wrote back they did not carry it. Even after that I had to push them into checking on it and they finally took it out of his personal items and gave it to him. Would sure help if all the commissaries sold the same things at the same prices.

    Ramsey Unit no longer has athletic shoes available for purchase, this really bothers me cuz he's been in there for two years and jogs 3-5 X a week, his shoes are falling apart now.
