Payless closing 3 local stores after filing for bankruptcy

2 local Payless stores closing

Another well-known retailer is downsizing as the traditional shopping experience takes another hit and three local stores will be closing. 

Payless ShoeSource said it has filed for bankruptcy and plans to close about 400 stores nationwide.

That includes the Payless locations at the Phillipsburg Mall in Warren County, New Jersey, the Wind Gap Plaza in Northampton County, and the Montgomery Square shopping center in Montgomery County.

Payless is the latest retailer to succumb to increasing competition from online rivals like Amazon.
