Belk Charity Sale

This year, Belk’s Back to School Charity Sale at the local store will go to benefit education. The Klumac Road location has teamed up with Hurley Elementary, the Salisbury High School Band and the Rockwell Lions Club. The Aug. 25 event is by ticket only.

The Belk Charity Sale offers customers exclusive discounts on top designer brands and the opportunity to support local schools and charities in Salisbury. This private ticketed event will take place on Saturday, Aug. 25 from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. and the first 100 customers in each store will receive a Belk gift card ranging from $5 to $100.

To access the private shopping event, customers must purchase a $5 ticket. That ticket price will be deducted from their total purchase when they return to shop on August 25. Tickets can be obtained from partnering charities and schools, and 100 percent of proceeds will stay with that organization. Tickets can also be purchased directly from Belk and all in-store ticket sale donations will be divided among that store’s partner charities.
