A new Burkes Outlet store is opening September 19th in Minden.
Burkes Outlet sells an assortment of name-brand fashion, beauty and home items at up to 70% off other stores’ prices.
“From clothing and shoes for the family to unique home items to handbags, accessories, beauty items and more, Burkes Outlet is constantly bringing in new product,” said Dave Alves, President and Chief Retail Officer of Bealls Family of Stores.
“We love surprising our guests,” Alves continued. “It’s all about the treasure hunt. That’s why when you see something you love, you have to grab it fast.”
The store will bring approximately 25 new jobs to the Minden community.
“I’ve been following the growth of Bealls Companies and I am blown away with the growth, especially in times like these,” said Phillip Smart, Development Director. “Burkes Outlet gives our citizens a more affordable and diverse shopping experience and it brings more jobs to Webster Parish.”
A grand opening celebration will take place September 19th through September 29th with games and giveaways. Smart said one winner will receive a $100 Burkes Outlet gift card.
