Belk is celebrating 125 years in the retail business.
The store hosted a ribboncutting Wednesday and marked the occasion by treating its first 100 customers to gift cards, as well as prize drawings and special prices through the day.
Customers may also register online to win. The company is giving away prizes daily company-wide for 125 days. Customers may register at belk.com or Belk's Facebook page.
"It's a great company. It's family-owned. It's modern, southern style," said store manager Tina Crouch. "And that's why they've been around for 125 years and they're going to be around for 125 more."
The store also recognized long-time employees who have helped maintain the company's success.
