Payless ShoeSource has filed bankruptcy and will be closing its stores across the country, including our local store in the Gallatin Valley Mall.

Employees at the Payless ShoeSource in Bozeman indicated that the store will be closed in May. The company already closed some of its stores across the country back in 2017 as part of a re-organization.

Payless was started by two cousins in 1956. The closing will effect some 2,500 locations nationwide.
