Retail Discounts Part 1
Date: August 31, 2006
Author: David Smidt, SeniorDiscounts.com
Many retail chains offer discounts to the over 50 crowd, but
they do not always advertise the discounts, so it can be difficult to track them
The age requirements for these discounts will vary depending on
the retail store you visit. Some begin as early as 50 years of age while others may
only offer the discount to those 62 years of age and older. The discount amount for
seniors is typically 10% but there are some chains that provide a 20% savings and
even a few that will offer more.
While some chains may not offer senior discounts, their factory
or outlet stores might. Many factory and outlet malls will have senior discount
programs available at some, if not all, of the merchants located in the mall.
Typically senior discounts at retail stores will not be offered
every day. Usually, stores will offer a senior discount one day a week, most commonly
on Mondays or Tuesdays.
Below is a list of some retail chains that offer senior discounts.
