William Belk started the first Belk store in Monroe, North Carolina in 1888.
This makes it safe to say the Belk brand has been around for a while.
I’d actually never heard of the Belk store before until recently however, since I have lived in the northern part of the US for my whole life, Minnesota in the Midwest, and Boston in the Northeast.
Belk only had $750 saved up when he started the store, and keep in mind this is 1888, so $750 was worth a lot more then than it is now.
He also had to take out a $500 loan, and have $3,000 worth of goods which he took on consignment.
Like we all do with our siblings, he was able to convince his brother Dr. John Belk to join him as a partner.
Together they are able to grow the business, much of the success owed to their partnerships with already flourishing businesses.
In 2010, Belk announces a new slogan, “Modern. Southern. Style.” to give it a fresh, hip saying its target audience can relate to.
Belk sold itself for $3 billion to Sycamore Partners in 2015.
This sale made the Belk family very rich, because they owned 70% of the company stock at the time.
Currently Belk is made up of 293 stores in 16 southern US States.
To contribute to its success, it wants you to take its online belksurvey at www.belksurvey.com.
You’ll be able to let them know your feedback so they can potentially try to adjust their store accordingly.
The customer AKA you, is king of course.
