I had the privilege last Friday to be invited to a regular luncheon of retired Belk associates who live in the Wilmington, NC area. These people are part of the most successful group of retailers I have ever had the good fortune to work with. They were hand selected by a couple of men who influenced me almost as much as my own parents. I am proud to have worked with these fine people.
Katherine Brandi, Farrell Teague listen to a Bill Starling story. Bill is a great story teller in the Southern tradition and all of them true!
Ken Bishop, Bobbie Coxe and Andy Coxe. Another old associate from that era was Amos Irwin. Mr. Irwin and Mr. Coxe almost always followed each other at business meetings. We used to call it the "Amos and Andy show".
Jim Murrill and Ken Bishop still listening to Bill's story.
