Department store chain Belk (Charlotte, N.C.) has tapped MaryAnne Morin as its new President and Chief Merchandising Officer, roles in which she’ll lead the company’s merchandising and private brands teams.

Morin’s retail career spans more than three decades. She previously served as President at both Stein Mart and Republic Clothing Group, EVP at Hudson Bay Company, and also worked for Lord & Taylor, Macy’s and Echo Design Group.

“We’re thrilled to welcome MaryAnne to Belk,” said Belk CEO Don Hendricks in a news release. “We are always striving to provide our customers with the best shopping experiences … MaryAnne’s wealth of knowledge will help us make that experience even better, whether customers are shopping in our stores, on Belk.com or our mobile app.”

Privately owned Belk Inc. opened its first location in 1888. Like many of its brethren, the department store chain has experienced some rocky times in recent years, including a Chapter 11 restructuring that it underwent in 2021.

It currently operates nearly 300 stores in 16 southeastern states.
