Friday letters: Belk expansion disappointing

March 7, 2014 

— I read in dismay in The State about the expansion of the Belk department store at Columbiana Centre.

Those of us who live in the Northeast area of Columbia had heard that the Village at Sandhill would include an upscale two-floor Belk; we were disappointed when a small, less appealing and unattractive store was built.

Certainly the owners and managers of Belk don’t think that we can’t afford or won’t buy upscale merchandise.
