(PATCH) Payless will begin liquidation sales at its U.S. stores on Sunday, a company spokesperson said.
“We expect all stores to remain open until at least the end of March and the majority will remain open until May,” the spokesperson said in a statement. Liquidation sales will begin on Feb. 17.
Reuters reported on Friday that the discount shoe retailer plans to close all of its U.S. stores as part of a bankruptcy filing later this month.
The closings would affect about 2,300 U.S. stores, according to the Reuters report. Sources told Reuters that a buyer could still crop up.
