We’re not sure which furniture company was the first to add a Veteran’s Day sale to their yearly campaign, but we at Gardner-White along with nearly every other furniture store around is offering deals in honor of our great veterans.
Now, there’s no denying that veterans and civilians alike enjoy saving money on excellent mattresses and furniture for their home. But we feel like our vets and the holiday that commemorates them deserves more honor and recognition than just great deals and low prices.
Gardner-White is teaming up with Fox 2 and MyFoxDetroit.com to present the Tribute to Our Troops special commercial-free at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 11. This special Veteran’s Day program salutes service members from Michigan through profiling several veterans of different wars and the sacrifices they’ve made to protect our freedoms.
The program will also feature companies looking to hire veterans. Many businesses require employees with particular skill sets, and veterans are some of the best for the job.
Not all war veterans dress in uniform every day. Who knows, the person beside you at a restaurant could be the reason why you have the opportunity to be sitting there in the first place. What we do know, however, is every one of them deserves our thanks, and this tribute is one of the ways we at Gardner-White intend to express our gratitude.
After the initial airing on Veteran’s Day at 6:30 p.m., the entire program will be available online at MyFoxDetroit.com. It will also re-air the following dates:
- Thanksgiving Day – 6 p.m.
- Dec. 1 – 6:30 a.m.
- Dec. 24 – 5:30 a.m.
- Jan. 1 – 11 p.m.
