All Payless ShoeSource stores to close

Payless Shoe Source to shutter its remaining American stores

Payless Shoe Source will soon be closing all 2,100 remaining stores in the U.S. and Puerto Rico

It was just about two years ago that Payless ShoeSource made a surprise announcement that they would be closing hundreds of stores across the country.

Payless, based in Topeka, Kansas, filed for bankruptcy protection in April 2017 and closed almost 400 stores.

The company is set to close all 2,300 locations, the report said. The retailer has been trying to find a buyer. The company expects all stores to remain open until the end of March and the majority until May.

The report mentioned that there is still a small chance the company could be bought after the bankruptcy filing. The three Island Payless stores are located in New Dorp, Port Richmond and in The Staten Island Mall, New Springville.

"All my fault" - Marcelo mocks fan criticism after Girona performance
Real Madrid boss Santiago Solari said: " Girona were better in the second half, they caused us a lot of problems". Sitting in 17th place with 24 points, the club is just one point above the drop zone.

This could lead to the company having clearance, liquidation sales as soon as next week.

Payless is the latest brick-and-mortar retailer to suffer in the age of Amazon, joining Toys "R" Us, Brookstone and clothing store Charlotte Russe. For now, stores will reportedly have going-out-of-business sales starting next week, with eventual plans to completely liquidate.

Payless was founded in 1956 with the goal of selling affordable shoes in a self-service setting and says it's the largest specialty footwear chain in the Western Hemisphere.
