PETITION TO URGE LOWE'S TO TREAT VETERANS EQUALLY


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.

  • Ralph Dalessandro 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.

  • marty herron Lowes (Orchard Park) has been good to me in the past. I did major remodeling in my home. They never questioned my Erie County issued card. Chris Jacobs and his office treated me with great respect when I applied two years ago. This was a nice perk while it lasted! I feel for the employees that have to hear our complaining. If the American Legion had gotten involved maybe something could have happened

  • Sharon Chaplain I was just at the Brockport Lowe's and the manager wouldn't even look at me when she denied my card. After checking the Dept. of Veteran's Affairs website, I went back down to complain. The store employees told me this "new policy" came down from corporate, they're aware of how awful it is & that the best thing I could do would be to contact corporate & complain.
