Vienna Belk to hold 4-hour Fall Charity Sale Nov. 9

VIENNA – Belk’s fall Charity Sale will be from 6-10 a.m. Nov. 9 and provides an opportunity for customers to support local charities while taking advantage of special discounts of 20-70 percent during the four-hour event.

In return for purchasing a $5 ticket, customers get discounts on rarely discounted merchandise and will receive a $5 credit on Charity Sale purchases to offset the cost of the ticket.

Charities keep all the proceeds from the $5 ticket sales.

The first 100 customers in each store on the morning of the Charity Sale will receive free Belk gift cards ranging in value from $5 to $100 and a chance to win one of three $1,000 Belk gift cards awarded company-wide.

“Our biannual Charity Sale is a win-win for Belk and the communities we serve,” said Jessica Graham, vice president, communications and community relations at Belk. “The upcoming Charity Sale event on November 9th is a great opportunity for our customers to get great bargains on our latest fall fashions and top brands and at the same time benefit their favorite local charities. .”

Charity Sale tickets are being sold by participating non-profit organizations and at Belk stores. All revenues from in-store ticket purchases are divided among participating charities and schools in each local store.

In addition, all Charity Sale participants will be entered into a drawing to win one of three $1,000 cash awards, one in each of the three Belk operating divisions, for their school or non-profit organization.

The Spring 2013 Belk Charity Sale raised more than $5 million for 8,000 schools and community nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations in Belk markets. Last year, the spring and fall Charity Sales raised more than $10 million for participating charities.
