Default Lowes gets it.


I know, there's a bird in the picture. Thanks Lowes for supporting the Veterans.

I feel guilty taking the 10% discount. I would feel like a total douche parking there. But all I did was go to work for my time.

Our Lowe's here does it. I won't park in the spaces (there's plenty more deserving folks than myself for those), but my wife signed me up for the discount.

Our Cabela's has the same. I never park there, but did a few weeks ago because it was raining and wife was with me.

Ours has 4 spots as well, but they ain't the greatest spaces. Unless you are coming or leaving the pro entrance

Haven't seen one out here, surely a libtard would lodge a complaint for unfair parking rules and discrimination. But kudos to Lowes

I've seen these but there is no way I'd be able to park there. Just feels weird.

And there you have it. The store has 2 spots for veterans, and so far most folks have indicated they won't park there because they would feel awkward accepting kudos for performing a duty and a service.

Post a sign for EBT parking only and see what happens..... 486 cars trying to get into 2 spots so people get what they "deserve"......

local grocery store (Cash Wise) has 4 parking spots like that, Veteran parking only what's humorous, they are closer to the entrance of the store than the handicapped parking.

they have them around here but they are always taken by people clearly not veterans.. I'm talking 18-20 YO millenial snowflakes.
