CORINTH – Belk is preparing to move into a larger store space at the opposite end of Southgate Shopping Center.
Specifics of the expansion have not yet been announced by the company, but the Daily Corinthian reports that preliminary work began this week in the building that formerly housed Walmart and Goody’s.
The renovation is an approximately $1.7 million project and will about double the store’s current floor space.
Belk reopened after the store was flooded when major storms struck Corinth and Alcorn County last May and completed extensive repairs at that time.
Plans for the new location include installation of flood-proofing gates at the doors, the report said.
