Belk celebrates formal reopening in Statesboro

STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) -

One big named retail store has expanded their home in Statesboro.

Hundreds of shoppers came out Oct.12 to celebrate the formal reopening of Belk in the Statesboro Mall. The store underwent a nine month, $4 million expansion and renovation. The expansion gives the store 25,000 more square feet.

"With all the bad news and word of stores cutting back or closing, to know this company is investing here and growing was welcomed news to customers," said Michael Lukas, store manager.

Lukas thanked customers for their patience during the construction and renovation. It was the store's first make over since 1990.
