Within Belk's sprawling Charlotte, N.C., headquarters, in the 10,000-square-foot space housing the corporation’s $1 billion private brand operation, John Thomas talks about taking the business to the next level.


“We’ve put on a ton of growth in private brands in the last four years,” said Thomas, executive vice president of private brands, who oversees a team of 90 apparel, textile, technical and package designers, product managers and logistics personnel. “We really got good at offering value and opening price points. We knew we were doing a great job in traditional, but our customer has been asking for more modern and contemporary styles. For us, the next learning curve is how to provide great fashion.”
