GREAT FALLS — On Friday and Saturday (November 8-9) many shops and stores in Great Falls will be offering special military discounts for any personnel with a valid military ID.
The Downtown Great Falls Association is working with businesses to show appreciation to military personnel and veterans, especially with Veteran’s Day right around the corner on Monday, November 11th.
Kellie Pierce is the director of operations for the DGFA, and she says that when she contacts businesses to gauge their interest in participating in events like these, the response is usually overwhelmingly positive.
“We really just take the poster down to all the businesses along Central Avenue, First Avenue South, First Avenue North, and let them choose if they would like to participate,” said Pierce. “We do have a core group that offers a military discount every day, which is great, so I typically send out a press release and post on our Facebook page. Businesses that have responded to me and let me know what their offers and discounts will be, so we list them right on our Facebook page.”
You can look for the Military Appreciation Days poster in the windows of stores around downtown Great Falls to see which locations are participating.
