Age has its perks, and a big one is discounts. Aiming to reward loyal shoppers and lure new ones, some of the nation's retailers offer special discounts to older consumers. It’s very common with supermarkets and has spilled over into other areas of retail. 

Big retailers, such as Kohl’s and Rite Aid, offer the same discount across the chain. At other smaller, independent chains, such as Goodwill, it can vary by store. With that in mind, here’s a list of seven retailers that reward you for getting older. ​
