By WKTV News

(WKTV) - Bass Pro Shop in Utica on Sunday honored veterans, police officers, fire officials and military personnel.

The local heroes could come to the store and receive a discount and be honored.

Merchandise was offered at 10 percent off and the first 100 customers received a free ornament. Santa Claus was also there.

"These people put their personal time and paid time to help people out and support their communities," said John Watkins, hunting manager at the store. "As a company, we believe it's important to be a part of the community and help out as much as we can, so we try to give back."

The shop hopes to continue the event annually.
