Cam Newton’s Clothing Line Propsers at Belk!
Putting my name on my clothing line, first off, is a dream come true. And I would like to see it flourish, Cam said. But my first calling is football, so Im trying to take care of that first.
According to the Charlotte Observer, “Mens goods made up 18 percent of Belks $868 million worth of sales in its most recent quarter, the retailer reported. Thats up from 17 percent in the same period a year ago. Womens remained Belks top category, at 38 percent, followed by cosmetics, shoes and accessories, at 31 percent.”
Belk started sponsoring the Belk Bowl at Bank of America Stadium in 2011, signing on for three years as the title sponsor. The annual NCAA football postseason game was known as the Meineke Car Care Bowl before that.Belk operates 302 stores in 16 states, most of them in the Southeast. The company reported a $27.4 million profit in its most recent quarter, up nearly 10 percent from the same period last year.Without football success, I wouldnt have this opportunity, Newton said. That will always be my No. 1 priority. … I still feel 100 percent confident our goals are in reach.Read more here: http://www.charlotteobserver.com/2012/10/08/3586102/cam-newton-belk-launch-mens-clothing.html#storylink=cpy
