The Conroe Payless ShoeSource locations at 2904 I-45 N. and 1317 W. Davis St. will close this spring following the company’s decision to close all North American stores. Payless announced in mid-February that it would file for bankruptcy and close all stores in the U.S., Puerto Rico and Canada. Customer gift cards and store credit were valid through March 11, and liquidation sales are expected to continue until late March through the end of May, according to a statement from the company. Payless stores in other parts of the world will remain open, according to the statement.
