Great Clips Honors Veterans with Free Haircuts
● By Brenna McGowan
Great Clips’ “Thank a Veteran” promotion offers veterans a free haircut starting on Veterans Day, November 11, through December 31, 2014.
Customers can also get involved by giving veterans a free haircut card they can redeem through the end of the year. In the 2013 “Thank a Veteran”program, Great Clips salons provided more than 130,000 free haircuts to veterans, and this year they expect to give away even more. GreatClips.com.
On Veterans Day, Tuesday, November 11, customers who come in for a haircut at any U.S. Great Clips salon will receive a free haircut card to give to an active, inactive, or retired military member of any branch, including the National Guard. Military members can also come in on Veterans Day for a free haircut or to pick up a free haircut card to use, with proof of service, through December 31, 2014.
of us know at least one veteran we would like to thank on that day,”
says Great Clips CEO, Rhoda Olsen, who is married to a Vietnam
veteran. “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. Give the card to veterans in your family, or neighborhood or just
someone you notice is a veteran by saying ‘thank you’ 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.”
How It Works:
• Customers come into any U.S. Great Clips salon on Nov. 11 and, with the purchase of a service, receive a free haircut card to give to a veteran.
• Limit one card per customer (while supplies last).
• The free haircut cards are redeemable by veterans at any U.S. Great Clips from November. 11 – December 31, 2014, with proof of service. The promotion applies to veterans only.
• Veterans who visit Great Clips in the U.S. on November 11 receive either a free haircut that day or a free haircut card to redeem by December 31. After November 11, veterans must have a free haircut card to get the free haircut.
“Many of our franchise owners, corporate staff and Great Clips stylists have served in the military, or have family members or customers who have served, so we are all excited to be a part of this nationwide ‘thank you’ to our men and women in uniform,” says Terri Miller, Great Clips’ vice president of marketing and communications. “To make sure as many veterans as possible have the opportunity to get their free haircut, we made the free haircut cards good through the end of the year. We want to give these great people more time to visit a Great Clips and redeem this thank-you card for a free haircut in honor of their service.”
