Charlotte Retail Memories

A public TV retail segment featuring George Ivey of the Ivey's department Store chain. It looks at both Belk and Ivey's, Charlotte's dominant downtown retailers.

This clip features Charlotte retailers John Belk of Belk, Inc. and Leon Levine of Family Dollar Stores, Inc. There are lots of interesting clips -- a quick shot of Charlottetown Mall (and the Charlottetown Cinemas sign), the implosion of the downtown Belk store (!), early picture of the SouthPark fountain, and more.

Thanks to Pat Richardson for posting these video clips on YouTube.

To celebrate Belk's 100th Anniversary in 1988, a unique collage featuring memorabilia from Belk and Leggett’s' first 100 years in business was created. Here is a diagram of some of the items on the collage. (Courtesy Pat Richardson)
