Cozy Living Interiors and Boutique is continuing its tradition of giving away a recliner to a veteran in honor of Veterans Day.
Owner Pam Haberlock has had the store for three years and has given a recliner away each year.
“My dad was in the military for 28 years and my late husband was a Vietnam vet,” Haberlock said. “I was born and raised on a military base, so it's my passion to give back.”
The store also offers a discount to veterans. Haberlock enjoys meeting the winners and getting to see their reactions.
“They tell me their stories and I love hearing them,” Haberlock said. “It's always a good response.”
Chase Matthews, an Army National Guard veteran from Eddyville, was last year's recliner giveaway winner. He joined the military in 2001.
“I was very excited when I found out I won,” Matthews said. “My wife and I had been talking about getting a new recliner and when we saw the drawing at Cozy Living we thought we would give it a try.”
He knew several people had put their names into the giveaway so he wasn’t expecting to win.
“I was happy that I won,” Matthews said. “It was so nice of a local business to honor veterans in that way.”
To enter the Veteran’s Day recliner giveaway, stop by Cozy Living, 235 Northfield Dr., and write down your name and phone number. The winner will be drawn Nov. 11.
