Payless is Planning to Reopen Stores
Posted on Thursday, September 3rd, 2020 at 7:00 am
As you may remember, Payless ShoeSource closed all 2,100 of its stores in the United States and Puerto Rico in 2019, after filing for bankruptcy protection. Now, Payless is planning to reopen 300 to 400 standalone stores nationwide in the next three to five years.
In a press release, CEO of Payless Jared Margolis said, “We’re back and bringing more community responsibility, fashion-forward footwear, and on-trend partnerships to our 60M+ Payless customers who have missed us. We saw an opportunity for the brand to relaunch into the US market, providing our community with the affordable value driven products they’re always searched for, now across multiple categories, at a time when value couldn’t be more critical. Payless is for everyone, and now more than ever, the world needs to pay-less. We are also excited to bring Payless back to you, so you and future generations to come can lead the way forward.”
Customers in the United States can shop on the new Payless Ecommerce platform, as well as in brick-and-mortar stores (as they reopen). The online platform offers beloved Private Label brands including: AirWalk, American Eagle, and many more, to K-Swiss, Kendall + Kyle, and Aerosols.
Parents who have children that are attending school in-person this year may need to buy them new shoes. In some cases, a new pair of gym shoes will be sufficient. Keep in mind that your child may have grown between when remote learning started and the in-person school year began. They may need more than one pair of new shoes!
In addition, Payless also sells socks, purses, hats, and backpacks. Make sure to check for sales on those items. There could be a BOGO, or maybe a discount on socks when you buy a new pair of shoes. Those who get email from Payless could, potentially, start receiving coupons again.
