BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - A local program that thanks local veterans with store discounts is bigger than ever.
On Monday, the "Thank-A-Vet" discount card program gained its 500th participant. Fantastic Sams hair salons will now offer a 20-percent discount to veterans at four locations. The discount cards are available to any honorably discharged veteran in Erie County.
World War II veteran Dr. John Long said, "I encourage veterans living in Erie County as soon as possible to make themselves available to go down to the county clerk's office and get their discount card. I can assure you over a period of several months or a year you will save hundreds of dollars of your own savings."
The discount cards are available at the clerk's office on Franklin Street. Veterans must bring their original discharge papers with them to apply.
