Author: CH2 Press Release
Belk has announced a $2.7 million expansion and remodeling of its fashion department store at The Mall at Shelter Cove in Hilton Head Island, S.C. The project is designed to create an attractive and convenient new shopping environment and allow Belk to expand its assortments of the latest fashion merchandise to meet the growing needs of customers in Hilton Head and the surrounding region.
“This will be a phased project,” said Rob Jordahl, senior vice president of store planning and construction. “We will not vacate or close either Belk location at The Mall at Shelter Cove during the expansion and remodeling work.”
In the first phase of the expansion the main store was expanded into adjacent space in the mall by nearly 18,000-square-feet. The new area has been completely renovated to house expanded cosmetics, shoes, and ladies accessories departments. The Today’s Woman, juniors and children’s departments that were previously housed in separate locations within the mall were moved back into the main store. The Men’s and Home store remains in a separate building within the mall. The expansion project was completed this summer.
The second phase of the expansion and renovation project includes a full renovation of the main store that is scheduled for completion in September, with a grand re-opening celebration set for Oct. 14.
Belk at The Mall at Shelter Cove offers a wide selection of top designer and national brand apparel, cosmetics, accessories, shoes and home furnishings for the whole family. The store also features focused assortments of Belk’s exclusive private brand merchandise and a new Belk and Co. Fine Jewelers shop offering an outstanding selection of fine jewelry, watches and gifts.
“We’re excited about the expansion and renovation of our store,” said Scott Sutton, store manager. “It will enable us to better serve our loyal customers in this area by providing more of the top brands and products that they want. These improvements to our store are a sign of Belk’s ongoing commitment to be the department store of choice in Hilton Head.”
Belk has been serving the Hilton Head community since the store opened at The Mall at Shelter Cove 1988.
