Our Legacy of Impact

In 1888, 24-year-old William Henry Belk opened his first store with a dedication to “friendly service, fair prices and community involvement.” Today, the South’s original “hometown store” is now the nation’s largest privately held department store… a store based on quality products, unparalleled service and an unbreakable connection to its community.

Most recently, we partnered with Habitat for Humanity and our own Belk customers to build a home with a family during the 2017 holiday season.

We’re pleased to share that with the support of our generous Belk community, we donated more than $615,000 for Habitat for Humanity – enough to make several southern families’ dream for a home come true!

Watch the below video to learn more about our first Habitat home-build with the Parker family!
