CHARLOTTE, N.C., Oct. 13, 2009 — Belk unveils its 18,000-square-foot expansion and remodeling of its fashion department store at The Mall at Shelter Cove in Hilton Head Island, S.C. on October 14. Belk’s grand re-opening celebration will begin with a 9:30 a.m. ribbon-cutting ceremony at the store’s main entrance. Special guests for the ceremony will include area community leaders, news media and Belk representatives.
During the first phase, the main store was expanded into adjacent space in the mall by nearly 18,000-square-feet. The new area has been completely renovated to house expanded cosmetics, shoes, and ladies accessories departments. The Today’s Woman, juniors and children’s departments that were previously housed in separate locations within the mall were moved back into the main store. The Men’s and Home store remains in a separate building within the mall. Then, the second phase of the expansion and renovation project included a full renovation of the main store.
