The discount doesn’t apply to beauty and fragrance, consumables, select electrics, premium electronics and warranty products, sporting goods, premium athletic, sports team merchandise, premium sunglasses, toys, Columbia, Dyson, Koolabura by UGG, Levi’s, S’well and Timberland,. gift cards, Kohl’s charitable items. The offer doesn’t apply to the online store, and again, is available only on Mondays.

As always, check for prices at your military exchange, or online military exchange, and at other stores, and compare prices.

It offers an exhibit that tells the stories of veterans, their families and the fallen, across all service branches, and all eras of conflict. Personal artifacts, imagery and videos of veterans telling their own stories are featured.
