DALLAS (Dec. 12, 2013) – Belk, the nation’s largest family owned and operated department store company, today released renderings of its new store at the Galleria Dallas. The opening of Belk’s Galleria Dallas location marks a new milestone for the 125-year-old company, with its first flagship store in Texas.
As part of Belk’s move to Galleria Dallas, the mall’s northern façade will get an update that will create a more inviting entrance while staying true to its original design. The centerpiece of the exterior will be a towering 68 foot blue mosaic glass tile backdrop. The signature mark on Belk’s main entrance at Galleria Dallas was created to have a waterfall-like effect, adding greater visual appeal to the Dallas landmark. Construction on Belk’s 180,000 square foot space began in July 2013.
The anchor store’s makeover will include an entirely updated interior. Belk at Galleria Dallas will have three floors of shopping, a wider selection of merchandise and high-end brands such as Ralph Lauren, Pink Tartan, French Connection, Free People, Trina Turk, Nanette Lepore, Magaschoni, DKNY, Eileen Fisher and many more.
