Who likes to shop at Belk & get some AMAZING discounts & help fund Essie’s Girls Inc. Mentoring Program?

The Belk Charity Sale is a 4 hour event dedicated to supporting local nonprofit organizations. Twice a year, Belk has a Charity Day Sale, and the fall one will be on Sat. November 7th from 6 to 10 am. This is a special sale day, where Belk has almost everything in the store for up to 70% off (even items that almost never go on sale -- like cosmetics).

Essie’s Girls Inc. is selling event tickets/coupons for $5 and they are good for $5 off the sale, & 15%-70% off everything in the store -- even things that hardly ever go on sale! You can buy and use as many tickets as you like & the best part is you can use them at ANY Belk store!

There will even be 100 Belk gift cards given away during the sale.

You can purchase as many tickets as you would like, and they will let you ring up everything separately to get the most savings!! If you can't make the sale on Saturday, November 7th, you can reserve your merchandise (in the store) beginning Tuesday, October 27th.
