Great Clips Gives America a Way to Thank Veterans

On Veterans Day, Get a Service at Great Clips and Give a Free Haircut to a Veteran

October 26, 2015 // // MINNEAPOLIS - Across the nation, Great Clips salons and their customers are showing their appreciation to veterans and members of the military with the “You Can Thank a Veteran” promotion.

On Veterans Day, Nov. 11, 2015, all customers who get a haircut at a U.S. Great Clips salon get a free haircut card they can give as a thank you to an active, inactive or retired military member of any branch, including the National Guard. Limit one card per customer, while supplies last.

Veterans and active service members who come in Nov. 11 get either a free haircut or a free haircut card to redeem with proof of military service through Dec. 31, 2015, at any U.S. Great Clips salon.

Now in its third consecutive year, Great Clips’ “You Can Thank a Veteran” promotion has provided nearly half a million free haircuts for military members and veterans.

“Great Clips realizes there is no amount of gratitude we can show to the men and women who have served our country. Giving them a great haircut is a simple, yet meaningful, way to show appreciation for everything our veterans and service members have done for us,” says Great Clips CEO Rhoda Olsen, whose husband is a Vietnam veteran. “We invite people to get a haircut at Great Clips on Veterans Day and pick up a free haircut card to pass on to a veteran - whether the veteran is a family member, neighbor, colleague or just someone they know.”

“We encourage everyone to spread the word about our ‘You Can Thank a Veteran’ promotion and visit Great Clips for a haircut on Nov. 11,” says Terri Miller, Great Clips senior vice president of marketing and communications. “Great Clips salon owners and their stylists are excited to extend this year’s Veterans Day offer to as many veterans and service members as possible and exceed the 225,000 free haircuts they provided in 2014.”
