The southeast has some of the highest military veteran populations in the country, with more than 2.6 million active and retired military men and women living in the seven states Southeastern Grocers serves.

Together with our customers and associates, we have contributed over $8 million to honor and give thanks to our military and their families for the sacrifices they make for our nation and freedom. This Veterans Day, we will be showing our gratitude for our honorable servicemen and women by offering a 10 percent discount on groceries.”
