WASHINGTON, June 27, 2005 A major home-improvement store chain is offering all active, reserve and retired military personnel and their immediate family members a 10 percent discount on in-store purchases made during the July 4 holiday weekend.
The discount is available in Lowe's Companies, Inc. stores June 30 to July 4 on all in-stock purchases up to $2,000 (excluding special order and on-line sales) with a valid military ID.
"The men and women who serve in the U.S. armed forces are the reason America is able to observe Independence Day," said Larry D. Stone, Lowe's senior executive vice president for operations. "Throughout our company's 59-year history, Lowe's has supported current and former military personnel in many ways. Offering a discount to active, reserve and retired military personnel is another way we at Lowe's can express our gratitude."
Lowe's also offered a 10 percent discount to military personnel during the 2005 Memorial Day weekend.
The military discount program is offered in conjunction with the Department of Defense's "America Supports You" program, an ongoing nationwide campaign that communicates America's support to men and women serving in the U.S. armed forces. In addition to the discount, Lowe's gives away free "America Supports You" bumper stickers to store customers and has sponsored a NASCAR racing exhibit and how-to clinics for military families.
