May 30, 2012
CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 30, 2012 – Belk today announced the remodeling of its fashion department store located at West LaGrange Commons in LaGrange, Ga. The $2 million project will allow the store to offer expanded merchandise, including new styles of shoes and accessories.
This is the first remodeling project the LaGrange store has undergone since opening in 1979. The renovated store will feature a modern new shopping environment with the latest display fixtures, new tile flooring, ceilings and energy-efficient lighting, as well as updated restrooms and fitting rooms.
Construction is underway and will be completed in September, prior to the store’s grand re-opening on October 10, 2012. The store will remain open throughout the project.
“We are thrilled to be updating our store and creating an exciting new shopping experience for our loyal customers in the LaGrange community,” said store manager Tony Palmer. “The renovations will provide customers with a modern retail layout, decor and merchandise presentation, and allow us to expand assortments and add new selections throughout the store.”
The 67,000 square-foot store will now offer an extended selection of accessories and a newly expanded shoe department.
The store’s new modern jewelry and accessories departments will also feature “open sell” fixtures, making it easier for customers to make their accessory selections.
“Belk is dedicated to its LaGrange customers and these improvements demonstrate our ongoing commitment to be the top department store of choice in our community,” said Palmer. “We want to satisfy the Southern lifestyle fashion needs of our customers like no one else and deliver the fashion they desire and the value they deserve.”
