THE WOODLANDS, Texas and CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of a strategic partnership that Conn's, Inc. (NASDAQ: CONN) and Belk announced earlier this year, the first store-within-a-store pilot concepts have launched in five Belk locations under the name "Conn's x Belk."

Additional Conn's x Belk locations are planned to open throughout the summer and early fall of 2022, along with an eCommerce experience coming to Belk.com this fall. The Conn's x Belk locations feature a name brand assortment of all major Conn's product categories including furniture, home electronics and appliances. The store-within-a-store formats range from approximately 10,000 to 25,000 square feet depending on the Belk location.

To honor this new shopping experience, all five of the Conn's x Belk locations will hold grand opening celebrations on Saturday, August 13, 2022 from 10:00 a.m.2:00 p.m. that will include giveaways, treats, and music. Customers can experience the new Conn's x Belk pilot at the following Belk locations, open now:
