Is Belk closed on Thanksgiving?
Belk stores will be closed on Thanksgiving Day 2023, but you can still shop Black Friday deals online. Just remember, free curbside or in-store pickup won’t be available for Belk.com orders on Thanksgiving Day.

3. Save up to 75% when you shop their Doorbuster deals.
Belk launched early Black Friday deals called “Black Friday Sneaks” in mid- to late-October in 2022, with doorbuster deals that ran for a whole month. The first Belk pre-Black Friday deals came out on Oct. 31, 2022, so expect the same in 2023.
Their Black Friday Sneaks featured deals like 60% – 65% off select brands and up to 80% off clearance.

4. Some Black Friday deals were only available Nov. 25 – 28.
In 2021, Belk set aside a bunch of Black Friday deals for around the big day itself. These were hot deals on popular items that typically sell out fast (like Ninja air fryers and toasters), so you had to hurry and jump on these deals as soon as they dropped.
During the 2022 sale, certain cookware sets got the limited-time treatment, and many makeup discounts were “while supplies last.”
5. Look for giveaways in the sale ad for the chance to win free gift cards.
For 2022, Belk opened up a two-day giveaway that started on Black Friday. If you entered, you got the chance to win a gift card worth anywhere from $5 – $250. How’s that for Black Friday savings?
The giveaway was an in-store-only offer, but there were 175 winners per store, per day — plus one $250 winner at every Belk store. To us, that sounds like it’s worth the trip to the store.
6. Belk’s best Black Friday deals are always on fine jewelry — you’ll save up to 80%.
For 2022, the Belk Black Friday sale featured jewelry deals like a pair of diamond earrings for $29.99 with a $50 purchase ($125 value), Nine West necklace gift sets for as low as $12, and savings as high as 75% off Effy, Belk & Co, and Belk Silverworks jewelry items.
And just like in previous years, the Belk Black Friday sale had a selection of fine jewelry clearance for up to 80% off. Plus, there was an amazing in-store coupon for 70% off Fine Jewelry & Belk Silverworks on the last page of their Black Friday ad.
7. Expect to save 70% or more on toys, shoes, apparel, and accessories during the sale.
These items have some of the biggest discounts of all Belk Black Friday deals. In 2022, Belk had toys from Discovery Kids, Nerf, and Sharper Image for 70% off. The deals in other categories were just as awesome and almost too good to believe.
8. Top brands like Dooney & Bourke and Estée Lauder are up to 50% off for Black Friday.
Belk doesn’t hold back with designer deals for Black Friday. Just like in 2021, Dooney & Bourke handbags were on sale for up to 50% off in 2022.
You could also get select Estée Lauder products for 50% off and MAC eye and lip products for up to 30% off.
9. Choose free store pickup for the chance to win a gift card worth up to $575.
Belk has a free shipping minimum of $49 for online orders. But that’s okay — you can pick up your Belk order for free in-store or through contactless curbside pickup.
For the past few years, Belk has run a contest for customers who selected in-store pickup. They’ll give one store pickup customer at every store a gift card for the equivalent of their order (up to $575, including tax!). The promotion in 2022 lasts Nov. 18 – Dec. 24.
