Belk Charity Day Set for May 2
Belk's Charity Sales have helped to raise millions of dollars for nonprofit organizations throughout the company's 16-state market.
Locally, more than 20 organizations are selling tickets for this season's four-hour shopping event to be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 2. This is an opportunity for customers to support many worthwhile charities and take advantage of the special discounts offered to ticket holders.
For a $5 donation, customers will receive coupons that will entitle them to discounts ranging from 20 to 50 percent off throughout the store, including savings on rarely discounted merchandise. The donation will be deducted from the first purchase of $5 or more, including cosmetics and fragrances.
Belk Premier card holders will receive double points, and Belk Elite card holders will receive triple points for purchases on their Belk cards during the sale.
All Belk customers will receive $10 in Bonus Bucks for every $50 they spend and will be eligible to register to win a $1,000 Belk shopping spree.
Customers with Belk cards do not need to wait until the morning of May 2, to take advantage of the sale.
