Some El Paso Payless locations to close amid bankruptcy

EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) - Four El Paso Payless shoe stores are among the hundreds of locations to close across the country amid the company's bankruptcy.

According to the Payless website, those locations are as follows:

  • Cielo Vista Mall
  • Sunland Park Mall
  • 119 S. Stanton (Downtown)
  • 1900 Lee Trevino (at Montwood)

No Las Cruces locations were listed.

The company announced it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection Tuesday. In a statement, company CEO W. Paul Jones called the move a "difficult, but necessary decision driven by the continued challenges of the retail environment."

Payless is one of many once-dominant retailers in trouble as online shopping sales continue to rise. The shoe chain plans to shut down roughly 400 stores immediately.
