Every year, Veterans Day is an opportunity to thank the men and women who have served and are currently serving our country in the military. With the "You Can Thank a Veteran" promotion, Great Clips hopes our customers will pay forward an act of appreciation to a veteran in their live. While not all of us have served in the military ourselves, most of us know at least one veteran we would like to honor on that day.
In 2016, Great Clips partnered with The Greatest Generations Foundation to honor survivors of the Pearl Harbor attack during the event's 75th anniversary.
“We invite everyone to come into a U.S. Great Clips salon on Veterans Day (Nov. 11) to purchase a service and pick up a free haircut card," says Great Clips CEO, Rhoda Olsen, who is married to a Vietnam veteran. "Give the card to a veteran in your family, a neighbor or just someone you notice is a veteran to thank them for serving our country. It’s a simple, yet meaningful, way for more people to show appreciation to veterans with the help of Great Clips.”
In 2016, Great Clips salons provided over 242,000 free haircuts to veterans through the Thank a Veteran initiative.
"I have been a Great Clips customer for many years and was excited to hear about the Veterans Day promotion. As a veteran, I am happy to see Great Clips honor veterans. Thank you." - Mike K.
