Military Discount Program

Military Discount

Every day the Chamber is active in building partnerships that strengthen our community. With over 4000 active duty military members stationed in eastern Connecticut, the military is a significant part of the community. Recognizing that, the Chamber of Commerce of Eastern Connecticut’s Military Affairs Council (MAC) developed a Military Discount Program to honor those local heroes.

Offered to show appreciation to military personnel and their families stationed in the eastern region, Military Discount Program discounts may come in the form of a percentage off food or merchandise, two-for-one discounts, and other forms of discounts.

The following businesses are active participants in the Military Discount Program. However, this list is far from complete. The Chamber’s call for businesses to offer a military discount is still open. Those businesses who currently offer military discounts are also encouraged to contact the Chamber so that they can be included on the Chamber's web page, newsletter and emails.

For more information about Military Discount Day or to offer a military discount, please call 860-701-9113.

Please note: Some military discounts are available to active duty military only. Please contact the businesses to see if the discount extends to retirees and/or dependants.
