Colorado Springs is a well-known military community, as there are five installations locally with thousands of dedicated members serving our country. Colorado Springs grocers and stores for essentials proudly offer discounts to these brave men and women, and here are a few places to save some cash if you are a military service member.
Every first Saturday of the month, Safeway and their partner stores Albertson's offer a well-deserved 10% discount to those who serve and have served. Active duty, retired personnel and those with appropriate identification qualify for the savings, and they make it easy to knock off $10 or $20 off the bill for food goods. Like most stores, these discounts don't apply to liquor, tobacco, lottery tickets and such, but the goods you need are on hand at these suppliers.
Back in the day, Bimbo Bakeries was virtually unknown, but as one of Mexico's most recognized operations providing the pastries and baked goods we love, it didn't take too long to gain attention. Not only has Bimbo bought the famed and beloved Mrs. Baird's bakeries in Texas, but their expansion has grown to include 33 countries. Those who love baked goods and happen to be veterans can take advantage of a 10% discount at Bimbo Bakeries USA every Thursday and Sunday.
Much more than accouterments for the palate, the Savory Spice Shop has spices galore and much more. This innovative store offers gifts, meal solutions for the healthy-minded shopper, and veterans and military personnel receive a discount of 15% off their purchases. Families love coming here, because the Savory Spice Shop also offers educational style culinary courses designed for attendees of all ages. Curbside pickup is also available, so it's a great place to shop when short on time.
Walgreens offers a 15% discount to our military personnel and veterans every Tuesday. There's more than just medicines and band-aids at Walgreens these days, and this chain store now offers a good selection of groceries, a photo development hub, and they can also handle all your shipping needs via FedEx. Vets should check out at the cosmetics or photo counter to receive their discount at this 24-hour, seven-days-a-week retailer located in the Southern Cross Shopping Center.
Colorado Ranch Market has quickly elevated into the hearts of Colorado residents. While active and retired military service members get an extra 10% off their goods, this store is wholly committed to the Colorado Springs community. The market is 100% employee-owned, supports native produce, cuts meats in-store and offers the best local brews the state has to offer. Those who care about supporting the local economy, farmers and brewers are happy to give the commissary a break and head out to the Colorado Ranch Market.
As a veteran or active-duty service member, you deserve to get a break on foods and related goods. These Colorado Springs grocers offer military discounts to acknowledge the freedoms we have due to your service!
