Belk to offer discount to educators today

BUFORD - Belk Department Store is offering a 20 percent discount to educators from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. today at its Mall of Georgia location.

All primary, secondary and college-level educators are invited to take advantage of the offer, good from store opening until closing, in recognition of their community commitment.

Belk has hosted a similar educator appreciation day for the previous two years.

"(We're) just trying to give to the community," said store manager Tim Barrett. "Belk is a big part of the community, and we want to show our appreciation for (educators) with this event."

The 20 percent discount - 15 percent in the home and shoe departments - has limited exclusions, including the traditional exclusions on cosmetics and fragrances.

Educators at schools located within an approximate 20 mile radius of the Mall of Georgia location, 333 Buford Drive in Buford, should have received a copy of the event invitation from the school office, though all educators are invited.
