Belk completes overhaul of Beaufort store

Belk has finished a $250,000 remodeling of its women's shoe department at its store in Beaufort's Cross Creek Plaza, according to a news release. The project also included remodeling the fashion jewelry, accessories and handbags areas.

"We've completely remodeled and greatly expanded the size of our ladies' shoe department to more than 5,000 square feet of space," store manager Ginger Olszewski said. "This allows us to offer a much larger selection of the top ladies' shoe brands and styles."

The store will celebrate completion of the remodeling with a grand-opening party from 5 to 9 p.m. Thursday in the women's shoe department. The event will feature music, refreshments, vendor giveaways and a drawing. Customers also will receive a discount coupon for 20 percent off in the shoes, fine jewelry and accessories departments. Customers who stop by the Estèe Lauder counter will receive a free bottle of Advanced Night Repair while supplies last.
