Belk charity sale to benefit nonprofits

MILLEDGEVILLE — Nonprofits across Belk's 16-state market area will benefit from the company's upcoming Spring Charity Sale.

Belk will provide an opportunity Saturday for customers to support local charities while taking advantage of special discounts of 20 to 70 percent off of purchases during the event. The four-hour charity sale is slated for 6 to 10 a.m. at Belk in the Milledgeville Mall at 2400 North Columbia St.

Patrons can buy $5 tickets for admission to the sale from participating charities, which keep the proceeds. In return for purchasing a $5 ticket, customers get great buys on rarely discounted merchandise and other items throughout the store, according to a press release on the event.

Tickets are also available in Belk stores for purchase. All revenues from in-store ticket purchases are equally divided among participating charities and schools in each local store.

Local store manager J.R. Ernst said the charity sale as a blessing times three.

"Basically, it's a win win-win situation," he said. "The local nonprofits benefit from the ticket sales, the customers get special discounts and we get traffic in our store."

The first 100 customers in each store on Saturday morning will receive free Belk gift cards ranging in value from $5 to $100. Also, they will receive the chance to win one of three $1,000 Belk gift cards.

The Fall 2013 Belk Charity Sale raised more than $5 million for nearly 8,000 schools and community nonprofit organizations in Belk markets across the South.

"It's something that any nonprofit organization can do, and it's a great way for us to make a difference in our community," Ernst said.

The $5 Charity Sale Ticket discount credit is valid on the first regular, sale or clearance purchase, including cosmetics and fragrances. Purchases of Brighton, Diane Von Furstenberg, My Flat in London, Vitamix, Ugg, and Under Armour are excluded. The discount is not valid on phone orders or purchases.
