It is a shame the way Belk is open on Sundays. The founder, Old Man Belk, didn't believe that the store should be open on Sundays. When he was on his deathbed, he asked his sons to promise that they would never open the store on Sunday. They promised.

Old Man Belk died on a Tuesday. The following Sunday, all Belk stores were open.

    I understand J.C. Penney o. was the same way, their stores did not open on Sundays until after Mr. Penney died. Personally I'd like to see a return to stores closing on Sunday. Think of the impact on the environment closing stores one day a week would have, less greenhouse gases produced by electricity generating plants and cars.

    That's because Tim and Johnny Belk only worship one god: the almighty dollar.

    Sundays should be a day of rest and a day for it use to be. Belk and so many other retailers only care about the $$. If consumers would stop shopping, they would have to close.
    I dislike the fact we have to now work longer hours without notice, standing at POS while it is busy, ringing for 3-4 hrs straight and they will not even provide a padded mat for employees. But, they say the care :/
