Chain Operates Outlet In Southside Mall

ONEONTA – Payless ShoeSource, which operates a store in Southside Mall,  confirmed it will close all of its 2,100 stores in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.  It started liquidation sales Sunday.

The company is also shuttering its e-commerce operations, according to a report in USA Today.

The closings mark the biggest by a single chain this year and nearly doubles the number of retail stores set to close in 2019.

“We expect all stores to remain open until at least the end of March and the majority will remain open until May,” the company said in a statement to the newspaper. “This process does not affect the company’s franchise operations or its Latin American stores, which remain open for business as usual.”
