Great Clips Helps America Thank Veterans

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

October 25, 2016 // Franchising.com // MINNEAPOLIS - Great Clips salons and their customers nationwide are showing appreciation to veterans and members of the military with the “You Can Thank a Veteran” promotion.

On Veterans Day, Nov. 11, 2016, 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, 2016, at any U.S. Great Clips salon.

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

“We at Great Clips realize we could never give enough thanks to the men and women who have served our country. 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 everyone to get a haircut at Great Clips on Veterans Day and pick up a free haircut card to give a veteran — whether the veteran is a family member, neighbor, colleague or just someone they know.”

“We encourage everyone to visit Great Clips for a haircut on Nov. 11 and spread the word about our ‘You Can Thank a Veteran’ promotion,” 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 230,000 free haircuts they provided in 2015. Many of our corporate employees, salons owners and their stylists were veterans or have veterans in their families so we are all extremely passionate about giving back.”
