PETITION TO URGE LOWE'S TO TREAT VETERANS EQUALLY

791 Signatures Goal: 1,000


This petition urges Lowe’s to reform their military discount policy for veterans.

Lowe’s Corporate Policy offers an everyday 10% discount only to retired military veterans or those with a VA Card who receive benefits through the VA. However, the overwhelming majority of honorably discharged veterans are not retired from the military or don't qualify for the VA card, leaving a vast number of our heroes unrecognized.

Every time a veteran goes into a Lowe’s and is rejected from receiving the 10% discount because he or she isn’t the “right kind” of veteran, its military policy administers unequal treatment of America's veteran community. After all - retired, disabled or not, didn’t they all equally put their life on the line to defend our freedom?

Lowe’s does offer a 10% military discount to all veterans on Veterans Day, 4th of July and Memorial Day but the number of veterans only continues to grow as more and more military are discharged. These heroes are coming back home after serving our country to start families and build homes.

What a wonderful and meaningful gesture it would be for Lowe’s to extend the 10% discount to ALL veterans, every day. After all, they didn’t only choose three days out of the year to protect our nation and keep us safe.

    I want to thank all my fellow veterans, brothers and sisters for their service and sacrifice.
    I want to thank Lowes in Tucson (Speedway and Kolb) for giving their 10-percent discount to specific types of veterans.
    I'm the wrong kind of veterans for Lowes' discount, but no less proud of my years in the US Navy, combat tours with the Tonkin Gulf Yacht club - and the charitable work I've enjoyed over the years.
    I plan to spend my money, what little I have, somewhere they don't care what type of veteran you are.
    Sorry Lowes - they say it's the thought that counts.

    I unfortunetly qualify for the 10% at lowe's. I would gladly trade any vet, my legs for theirs, cause the 10%, aint worth the pain I have daily.

    Home Depot used to accept the Thank A Vet card but lately the manager has denied the card and has a nasty attitude to the point that I will not shop there any more. I will go to Loews instead, they will take the discount and give me a "Thanks for your service".
    You have proof from Erie county that you are a vet-yet there is no (albeit small)
    gratitude for putting your life on the line for their FREEDOM at Home Depot except for 3 days a year.
