In the USA, Veterans Day annually falls on November 11. This day is the anniversary of the signing of the armistice, which ended World War I hostilities between the Allied nations and Germany in 1918. As a way for retailers to thank veterans this year, Wholesale Central has put together a list of some of our favorite veteran-owned companies.
From CBD products and apparel to pet supplies and more, check out our list and support a veteran-owned business today:
