Aug 17, 2011
CHARLOTTE, N.C., August 17, 2011 – Belk is investing approximately $2.3 million on a complete renovation of the first floor (lower level) of its SouthPark store.
The project will consolidate all of the store’s home merchandise departments on the first floor, and includes a total renovation of the Arthur’s restaurant and wine shop also located on the first floor. In addition, an expanded ladies moderate-price sportswear department, along with coats and swimwear, will move from the third floor to the fourth floor, and the juniors department on the third floor will be enlarged to offer broader assortments and styles.
The spacing and location of the intimate apparel and Today’s Woman special size areas on the fourth floor will also be adjusted as part of the project.
The store’s entire first floor is being completely renovated with new tile flooring, carpet, wall treatments, energy-efficient lighting and the latest display fixtures. Construction is still underway and will be completed later this fall with a grand re-opening of the remodeled space scheduled for October 12, 2011.
“We think customers will love the changes,” said Randy Dell, store manager of Belk SouthPark. “The remodeling gives our entire first floor a modern new look and will make shopping for home merchandise much easier and more convenient by placing it together in the same proximity. We’re also pleased to be able to offer a larger selection of styles and assortments of the latest fashions in our juniors and ladies moderate sportswear areas.”
“Another highlight of the remodeling is the Arthur’s restaurant and wine shop on the first floor, which now have a beautiful new décor and layout to make dining and shopping more enjoyable.”
