Home Improvement Giants Offer Discounts to Military

This weekend would be a good time to start those home improvements you’ve been putting off. The world’s two largest home improvement retailers are giving military members and veterans a 10 percent discount on in-store purchases as part of the Fourth of July holiday. The discounts are available now and will last through the holiday weekend. It is the same program both retail giants put in place on other patriotic holidays – Veterans Day and Memorial Day.

The promotion is open to members of the National Guard and the Reserve. Individuals must present a valid military ID or other proof of service, such as a Veterans Administration card, discharge papers or other proof of military service. Lowe’s and Home Depot both are known for taking care of employees who also serve in the Guard or Reserve. Plus, they have active programs to hire military veterans.

A spokeswoman for Home Depot said recently the discount is a way to thank military members and veterans for their service to the nation. That service, she said, allows customers and employees of Home Depot to sleep safely in their beds at night.

The two retailers have a near lock on home improvement in America. Lowe’s was founded in 1946 and now has more than 1,550 stores in the U.S. and Canada. Home Depot first opened its doors in 1978 and now has more than 2,200 stores in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can.
