Glade Park’s Belk gets a stroke of blue
Civic leaders from Northeast Tarrant County recently painted the first “blue” strokes on the Belk department store under construction at the booming Glade Parks development in Euless.
Belk’s 95,000-square-foot store will serve as one of anchors of the retail hot spot, which already includes a Dave & Busters entertainment eatery, Dick’s Sporting Goods and other stores and restaurants between Glade and Cheek-Sparger roads on the north side of Texas 121.
Those attending the gathering at Belk’s included Marlene Norcross, Belk’s vice president and regional manager for Texas; Euless council members Jeremy Tompkins and Linda Eilenfeldt; Glade Parks developer Zach Knutson; and Bedford Mayor Jim Griffin.
Belk, which has been in Texas since 1953 and in Dallas-Fort Worth for 10 years, is expected to open in March, next door to Dick’s Sporting Goods.
