LUMBERTON — If you’re shopping anywhere near the children’s department in Belk at Biggs Park Mall Saturday, don’t be alarmed if the mannequins spring to life.
Belk will be inviting local children to model the spring fashions from noon to 3 p.m. that day during an informal fashion show. Boys and girls ages 6 through 11 are welcome to participate.
“They will carry signs about he outfit they are wearing,” said Sandra Hayes, the area sales manager at Belk. “They get to walk around the store. It’s a little different from last year but I think the kids and parents will enjoy it.”
Participants will receive a 25 percent discount on any purchases from the children’s department during the event. They can also register to win a $500 shopping spree for children’s apparel, a $100shopping spree for children’s shoes or a vacation for a family of four to Atlanta. There will be games, refreshments, balloons and face-painting. The event is free and open to the public.
Parents interested in having their children participate can call Belk at (910) 739-3277 or stop by their location in Biggs Park Mall no later than Thursday.
