Businesses along Statesboro’s Blue Mile will be offering discounts to Georgia Southern University students, faculty and staff and the Statesboro community on game days and Averitt Center performances days.
Before or after any game day or Averitt Center event, patrons can bring their same-day ticket to participating businesses to get special discounts, said in the Blue Mile meeting last November.
Students also may receive a discount for presenting their Eagle ID or by wearing GS attire.
“It’s a great idea, especially for the people of the Averitt Center,” Hiya Guha sophomore computer science major said. “Having the discounts after the shows will entice people to go see more of the performances.”
Many businesses along the Blue Mile will offer discounts including:
