The STT Military Discount, Memorial Day, and Getting Tack-y
We are a tack-y kind of crowd.
Horse tack that is.
Remember that horse obsessed kid you went to school with?
That was us.
Well, maybe not us specifically, but we were that kid in our respective schools.
As Memorial Day approaches, we have been trying to get the word out about our military discount without straying into the other kind of tacky.
Tacky without the hyphen.
Turns out we have Vets who have been coming to the store for years without knowing they were eligible for the discount.
When something is going on around the store we put up some flyers and put it out on social media.
But really, we’d rather focus on making sure you are getting the right kind of tack for your horse.
See, tack-y with the hyphen.
Not just on special holidays.
There are a few exceptions. We keep prices as low as we can. So, there are products for which even a 10% discount is more than we can do.
You do need to bring in your military ID card and we do not keep that information in the computer. But it is year round, every day that we are open.
We will be closed on Monday May 30th.
It’s a special day and we too need the time to gather with friends and family. Time to remember.
And, like the rest of the nation, at 3pm we will stop. Whatever we are doing will stop.
There is always going to be some chore that needs to be done; always be a to-do list waiting.
Perhaps that is the very reason we invented holidays.
A time to step back from the hustle and bustle of the everyday grind and let our eyes stop focusing on the trees so we can see the majestic forest all around.
Americans are a diverse people, who don’t always agree on things; but we are a nation united by the constitution, a body of laws, and the heroes who have served in the past, are currently serving, and will serve in the future.
We don’t say it often enough, mostly because the words feel so inadequate.
But… Thank You!
Thank you for your service.
Thank you for your sacrifice.
Thank you for keeping the flag aloft, the people free, and the American dream alive.
There just are no words that can adequately express what we truly mean.
