Payless is Closing all its 2,100 U.S. Stores Payless is the latest retail chain to close up shop in the United States

The Payless ShoeSource store at the Central Mall in Salina is one of the 2,100 that will soon be out of the business.

According to Coresight Research, a company tracking retail, in the two months of 2019 USA retailers have announced 2,187 store closures- including Gymboree, J.C. Penney, Charlotte Russe and Ann Taylor. The shoe store will also dial back its online operations.

A Payless spokesperson says the stores will most likely remain open until May. After 18 months and new ownership the company temporarily exited bankruptcy. The Wall Street Journal said this may be the largest-ever US retail liquidation.

The company's franchise operations and Latin American stores will not be affected, according to the statement.

The Topeka, Kan.,-based company has more than 3,600 stores worldwide.
