Big Lots to honor military members with discounts on Armed Forces Day

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Big Lots is recognizing Armed Forces Day by offering a special discount for armed forces personnel and their families. On Saturday, May 19, all active, reserve, and retired service members will receive a 10% discount on their qualifying in-store purchases by presenting military identification. The discount can also be applied to sale and clearance items.

"We recognize the effort and sacrifice of all those who serve and protect," said CEO Steve Fishman, himself a former U.S. Army Reservist. "We hope many members of the military will take advantage of this offer and enjoy a special day of shopping in their honor."

Military identification includes the following: military ID card, military dog tags, Veteran ID card, Veterans organization card (e.g. American Legion, VFW), military discharge/separation document, VA benefits card, or other military designations.

The discount will be available at all Big Lots stores nationwide.
