I thought the full name was Belk Lindsay, at least that's what it was called in central Florida.
Belk-Lindsey was a 35-store chain based out of Orlando. It was founded in 1935 by E. Colin Lindsey in Ocala. To get the department store started, Lindsey borrowed $6,000 and William Henry Belk invested $12,000. It was one of many partnerships Belk formed in the south. The partner families (Lindsey in Central Florida's case) would manage regional stores under the direction of the Belk corporation. Prior to Lindsey's death in 1993, he was known as a pioneer of anchoring strip malls with department stores.
Evidently, Lindsey and Belk never really got along (chains had different visions), leading to Belk buying out the Lindsey family after his death in 1993. I PMed a complete streets planning project in downtown Ocala two years ago. The block where the original store was is a surface parking lot now.The original Belk-Lindsey in Ocala
