As states continue to ease restrictions following lockdowns due to COVID-19, Belk will begin inviting customers and associates back into the remainder of their stores.
Stores in Virginia and Louisiana will open doors on Monday, May 18, Kentucky stores are officially set to open on Wednesday, May 20, and West Virginia and Maryland stores will open Friday, May 22. As of May 22, Belk will be back open for shoppers in its entire 16-state footprint.
To help protect shoppers and associates, Belk continues to implement safety measures recommended by the CDC and local health authorities, including reduced operating hours from 12-6 p.m.; limited number of people inside a store at one time; associates wearing masks; closed fitting rooms; and installation of plexiglass shields.
Customers who may not be comfortable shopping inside a store are encouraged to check out Belk’s new curbside pickup service, which offers an additional limited contact shopping option.
“We’re grateful for the support we’ve received from customers and associates as we reopen our stores,” said Lisa Harper, CEO of Belk. “We are doing everything we can to make the stores as safe as possible. That is our No. 1 priority.”
