Say Goodbye Forever: These Chains Are Closing Locations In 2024


Payless has been around since the 1950s and has been supplying Americans with footwear until recently. Payless announced that it plans to close down all of its 2,500 stores by the end of the year as it is in full liquidation mode. Once the pandemic hit, the company knew that it had no chance of surviving and filed for bankruptcy shortly after.

Payless was on the verge of going out of business for several years, and it wasn’t until the pandemic hit that it finally crumbled. You probably won’t find any Payless stores now, as most of them are gone.
