November 11 is Veterans Day, a day when our nation honors those who have served in the United States armed forces. In recognition of the occasion, some area businesses are offering discounts and giveaways.
Attention veterans: Monday is your day, and while no one will ever be able to thank you enough for your service, area businesses are expressing their gratitude with deals and offers just for you. In Hazard there a several places to check out, starting with the coal river grille in Hazard.
“We’re going to offer them a free appetizer or desert and there's no purchase necessary,” said Shannon Lambert of Coal River Grille.
And if you're still hungry, Applebee’s is offering free food as well.
“We actually have a complete separate menu for all of our veterans to look at, and we have everything from a steak to a salad to our delicious bacon cheeseburgers to our famous three cheese chicken penne,” said Sandy Combs, general manager of Applebee’s in Hazard.
And while some of these businesses are serving these discounts only Veteran's Day, other's do it year round.
“The discount for the veterans, it is 83 dollars plus tax, the standard rate is 120 a night plus tax, not just Veterans Day, or memorial day, it's just year- round nightly,” said Eric Sims, an employee at the Hampton Inn and Suites.
“We also honor veteran's day every day. We will be offering a 10 percent discount on haircuts and products,” said Vallerie Spicer, of Smart Style Family Hair Salon
