NEW YORK — Savannah, Ga.-based Citi Trends has hired Elizabeth Feher as its executive vice-president and chief merchandising officer. Feher fills the vacated position of Geroge Bellino, who is set to retire from the value-priced urban retailer this week, after nearly a decade’s-worth of service. 

Feher, a 28-year apparel-merchandising veteran, most recently served as senior vice-president of women’s apparel, intimates and kids at Value City Department Stores. Prior to that, she held senior merchandising positions at retailers including Bon-Ton Stores and Hess’s Department Stores. Citi Trends has more than 300 stores in the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic, Midwest and Texas, and sells young men’s brands including Rocawear and Phat Farm.
