Belk to close through the end of the month due to Coronavirus

All Belk stores are closing through the end of the month due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

From the CEO:

Belk Customers,

I wanted to share an update on some changes we’re making in response to COVID-19.

Based on the CDC’s recommendation to limit large gatherings and in order to protect the safety of our communities, we’ve made the decision to temporarily close all stores to customers beginning March 17 at 6 PM through Monday, March 30. You can continue to shop any time on and our mobile app.

We understand this development can greatly impact our store associates, and we’ve taken steps to support them and their families during this time. We’re providing benefits and compensation to our impacted workforce during this two-week temporary closure.

Thank you for being a loyal Belk customer. For more than 130 years the health and well-being of our customers, associates and communities have remained top priorities. We’ll continue to monitor this unprecedented situation closely and keep you informed of any changes that would further affect your shopping experience as we navigate this time together.
