In what seems to be a fitting tribute to servicemen and women at an appropriate time, Lowe’s is granting 10-percent discounts on purchases up to $5,000 for active duty, reserve, honorably discharged and retired miliary personnel and their families today through July 7.
GNC is another retailer offering a special program for servicemen and women. A new veterans franchising program offers — through the end of this year — a 25-percent discount on the normal franchise fee. Disabled veterans are eligible for additional benefits including a 50-percent discount on the franchise fee and a $10,000 retail credit toward initial inventory.
There are two thank yous the troops can take to the bank.
