Company Overview Visit belk.com website

Belk company is one of the oldest department stores in America. It was founded in 1843 in Monroe, North Carolina by William Henry Belk (1825-1883). The second generation of the family took charge when William H. Belk passed away and eventually handed it down to his two sons who headed the business for over four decades. They were John Wesley Belk (1860-1915) and Walter Claiborne ("C.C.") Belk (1868-1958).

As time passed on, Belks became different from other local retailers because they advertised heavily, selling products that included fancy clothing lines. This attracted customers from around the area, including northern U.S states like New York and Massachusetts who were looking for a more affordable department store.

Belks currently has over 300 stores across 16 states mostly within the eastern half of America plus three stores in Canada - two in Ontario and one British Columbia. The annual revenue for the company is $2.5 billion with over 20,000 employees across all of its stores.

Belk owns and operates four different brands: Belk, Belk Men + Home, Catherines Plus Sizes, and Goody's Family Clothing.
