Belk department stores reversed its ban on Salvation Army bell ringers during the Christmas season after customers took to Facebook and Twitter to voice complaints. “During the process of making that commitment even stronger with our home for the Holidays campaign, we mistakenly left out the Salvation Army at some of our stores,” a Belk spokesman said. “We have fixed that as we know our customers are passionate about the Salvation Army.” If Belk had not reversed its decision, the Salvation Army estimated a loss of about $1 million. That’s a chunk of change for the humanitarian aid organization.
