Distributor Now Offers “Thank-A-Vet” Discount on American Made Products

Erie County, NY- Erie County Clerk Chris Jacobs announces that Big L Windows and Doors, located at 2727 William Street in Cheektowaga, has joined the ranks of participating businesses in the Clerk’s “Thank-A-Vet” Discount Program.  

Over the last two years, Jacobs has reached out to local businesses asking them to offer a discount or benefit to veterans who present the Clerk’s discount card.  “To date, we’ve grown the program to over 750 participating businesses,” said County Clerk Chris Jacobs.  “With the addition of Big L Distributors, we now offer an additional money saving option for our veteran community.” 

“I speak for all of us at Big L Windows and Doors when I say how proud we are to be part of the Clerk’s “Thank-A-Vet” program here in Erie County.  By comparison to their sacrifice on our behalf, it’s a small gesture, but at the same time it’s one way that we can give something meaningful back to these heroic individuals,” said Bill Horbett Sr., owner of Big L Windows and Doors.

 Big L Windows and Doors has been locally owned and operated since 1975 and offers a 10% discount on their high quality, American made windows and doors to veterans presenting the Clerk’s “Thank-A-Vet” card.

The “Thank-A-Vet” Discount Card is offered free of charge and available to any honorably discharged veteran in Erie County who files their original military discharge papers (DD214) with the County Clerk’s Office.
