Local discounts for military veterans

Potter County’s military veterans may now sign up to receive discounts on products and services from more than two dozen local businesses participating in the first-ever Potter County Veterans Discount Program.

To register, veterans should provide full name, mailing address, contact information (telephone and email, if possible) to the county’s Office of Veterans Affairs.

There are three ways to apply: 1.) send required information by an email addressed to wworthington@pottercountypa.net; 2.) send regular mail to Veterans Affairs, Gunzburger Building, 1 N. Main St., Coudersport PA 16915; or 3.) call 814-274-8290, extension 210, to schedule an appointment or obtain additional information. Office hours are 8:30 to 4:30 on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Each veteran who registers for the program will receive a membership card that must be shown at participating businesses to qualify for a discount. Veterans will also receive a brochure that identifies participating businesses by name and address, along with the particulars of their discount offer.

Under the program, merchants and professional service providers extend discounts – typically 10 percent or more – to Potter County veterans. Certain restrictions may apply. Businesses wishing to sign up or learn more about the program should call 814-274-8290, extension 207, or send email to dwooster@pottercountypa.net.

The program is being administered by the Potter County Veterans Service Committee. Members are Veterans Affairs Director Will Worthington, Commissioner Paul Heimel, and Executive Secretary Dawn Wooster.
