Belk stores will welcome shoppers to take advantage of a unique opportunity to “save money to raise money” during their semi-annual Charity Sale on Nov. 5, from 6 to 10 a.m.

Belk Charity Sale, the four-hour, in-store shopping event, offers an opportunity for customers to support local charities, while taking advantage of special discounts of 20-70 percent off on purchases during the event.

“Belk is committed to being involved in our communities and supporting causes important to our customers,” said Jessica Graham, vice president of communications and community relations at Belk.

“Each Belk Charity Sale offers us the opportunity to reach thousands of nonprofits across our footprint and to help them raise much needed funds.”

In 2010 Belk’s Charity Sale raised more than $9.5 million for hundreds of participating charitable organizations.

On the morning of the Belk Charity Sale, the first 100 customers in each store 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.

Each Charity Sale ticket gives customers $5 off their first purchase including cosmetics and fragrances, along with a variety of other savings.
