Shop for Charity Saturday at Belk

Posted by Jarvis Holliday On 4/30/2009 No comments
Ladies, you'll have a good excuse to shop this Saturday (fellas can go, too). Belk is holding a Charity Sale at its department stores nationwide to benefit local charities, schools, and nonprofit organizations. For a $5 donation, you'll receive a ticket to the sale from 6-10 a.m. for discounts ranging from 20 percent to 50 percent. You'll also receive $5 off your first purchase.

Participating local charities have been selling the $5 tickets since last Friday and they get to keep the proceeds from each ticket. You can also purchase tickets at Belk and those proceeds will be divided among the groups. Customers can also register to win one of three $1,000 Belk shopping sprees.

The last Belk Charity Sale, which was held in November, raised $4.5 million for nonprofit organizations around the country. The popularity of the event--and I would venture to say the need for a reason to bring shoppers back to the stores during this slowed economy--led to the department store chain holding this event again just six months later.

Belk, which is headquartered in Charlotte, has more than 300 stores in 16 states. There are seven stores in the Charlotte area. Click here for more details on the sale.
