ATLANTA — People can stop calling Belk a downmarket retailer.
With the rebranding of its upscale Parisian chain, acquired from Saks Incorporated nearly one year ago, the Charlotte, N.C.–based, family-owned department store retailer has gone upmarket and brought in some higher-end men’s brands that even Parisian didn’t carry. Among the labels new to the mix are Perry Ellis, Hugo Boss, Lacoste, Hickey Freeman and Chip & Pepper.
