Rumor has it that Belk will be closing their store in Morgantown Mall. Belk was acquired by new ownership recently and have decided to concentrate on the Southeastern states where they have a strong presence.

That would be really disappointing. It's one of the better moderate-priced stores in town. With Macy's shutting down in PA, we're left with Elder Beerman, Penny's, and Sears. I'd rather have Belk

Hard to believe that Belk would close before Sears and Elder Beerman as neither of them are fully stocked. Had hoped that the Mall would improve with the new ownership but it seems like it just keeps losing more stores. SAD!!!'

First told you "5 Months" ago that BELK WAS CLOSING!!!

Today, it was announced in the Dominion Post that BELK would be closing after the 1st of the year. In the article it was stated that the mall manager has not received anything official that would indicate that BELK would be closing. Can you say "CLUELESS"?

Mall ownership and mall management has absolutely no idea of what is going on at the mall.
There are no real promotions and the mall is very stagnant. Meadowbrook Mall, on the other hand, is proving that brick & mortar Malls can be Exciting and can offer an exceptional shopping experience.

The City of Westover has done nothing for the Morgantown Mall, except holding their hand out and beg for tax money. Will the collected taxes go towards anything to do with the Mall, Absolutely NOT!

Look at any and "ALL" of the commercial zones within the City of Westover, they All look like slums with NO planning and NO zoning!

Exactly. most cities and counties in WV are good at one thing : collecting taxes. The services they provide are barely adequate.
Most of the state looks like this and is why few people want to live here.
The prognostics for malls in america is very dim. A better approach would be to negotiate with ownership to lower rents for stores in the mall to help keep it open. Go look at the new mall in Tarentum Pa above Pittsburgh. 85% of the stores closed in five years and someone bought it for $5. Why? The million dollar yearly tax bill.

Maybe the City of Westover should completely take over the operation, couldn't be any worse than it is now and, at least, they could collect the taxes that they are due.

BELK has started their Store Closing Sale but it's nothing to write home about. They will have to get to 70 - 80% Off before I would buy anything.

Went to Belk today, Sat 2/3/18 - Entire store was 60% OFF.

Yes, Everything was 60% OFF - what an Absolute Ripoff- the Prices were jacked up through the roof!!!!

There should be a Law stating that when a store is going out of business, they CANNOT raise the prices before the sale!!!

If you thought the help was bad at Belk's before, you should see them now - could care less about anything.

Well I was wrong, said there wouldn't be a real sale until they went 80% Off.

They went 80% Off - BUT they raised the prices again and 80% Off is still too high!

There should be a law against stores advertising a sale but raising the prices at the same time.

The Mall wonders why it is dying;

>>>>. The Prices Are Too High. <<<<

OMG, just got back from Belk's (not much left)

Overpriced? You decide-

Picked up a tee-shirt -$44.00 - Yes,$44.00 for a regular tee-shirt that should be $8.00 to $10.00. Am convinced that Mall Stores are causing their own demise. With the internet, consumers can comparison shop.

All stores now price their items 5 to 10 times higher than they should be & run a phony sale.

There ought to be a Law against what Belk is doing

For gosh sakes man, stop going in there if the prices stress you out like that. No, there doesn't need to be a law. You just need to stay out of there and chill out. Maybe smoke some grass get all mellow and then go to Gabe's.
