The following is a list of Veterans Day discounts offered by local businesses in Randolph County for 2023. All of these have been confirmed and we will provide a link to the company’s website when one is available. Some events on other lists may not be here if there is no location in Randolph County or we were not able to confirm it from the company’s website or a press release.

If you know of a business we missed, or you’re a business owner offering a free or discounted item or service for veterans let us know.

Please note that most businesses will require proof of military service; therefore, we will only note when one has unique requirements.
