Struggling retailer Payless Shoesource is immediately closing about 400 “underperforming” stores nationwide after filing for bankruptcy this week.
More than 50 of those stores are in Texas, including four in Central Texas, according to a list released Wednesday.
The closing Central Texas locations are:
- Barton Creek Square mall, 2901 S. Capital of Texas Highway (Loop 360), Austin
- Shops at Tech Ridge, 12901 N. Interstate 35, Austin
- 301 Constitution Drive, Copperas Cove
- Killeen Mall, 2100 S. W.S. Young Drive, Killeen
Even after the closings, Payless Shoesource will still have about 4,000 locations nationwide, including several in Central Texas. Locations in the Austin area that remain open include ones at The Domain and Lakeline Mall.
Payless is one of several retailers to close stores this year, including Macy’s, JCPenney, The Limited and Bebe.
