BRENTWOOD, Tenn., June 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As recognition and appreciation of the military community for their service, Tractor Supply Company, the nation’s largest rural lifestyle retailer, will offer a 15 percent discount to veterans and active military personnel and their dependents on Wednesday, July 4, 2018.

On Wednesday, July 4, customers with a valid military ID or other proof of service will receive 15 percent off their entire purchase.

“Many of our customers and team members have a connection to the military—whether they are veterans themselves or have a family member who has served,” said Colin Yankee, former U.S. Army captain and senior vice president of supply chain at Tractor Supply Company. “On Independence Day and through our year-round work with military and veteran groups, we are able to offer a way to say thank you to our servicemen and women who have given so much for us.”

For example, Tractor Supply recently honored 50 veterans nationwide during an Armed Forces Day shopping event in partnership with the Farmer Veteran Coalition (FVC). The rural retailer donated $50,000 in awards through FVC’s Farmer Veteran Fellowship Fund, a grant program that offers assistance to veterans in the early stages of their farming operations, culminating in the one-day shopping event across the country.

“Tractor Supply is honored to recognize our military and their families and is proud to be a longstanding supporter of the military community,” said Yankee.

The Fourth of July discount will be available at all Tractor Supply locations. For updates on the Fourth of July and Tractor Supply’s partnership with military groups, follow Tractor Supply on Facebook and Instagram.
