SAN ANTONIO – Payless ShoeSource has announced a second round of store closings including three in San Antonio.

The closings come as its bankruptcy re-organization continues and bring the total to roughly 800 stores.

The stores in San Antonio closing are located on Marbach Road, South Zarzamora Street, and Perrin Beitel Road.

Payless is owned by two private equity groups which bought the network of shoe stores in 2012. Payless filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy back in April.

Payless CEO W. Paul Jones called the closings a difficult, but necessary decision driven by the continued challenges of the retail environment in an April statement.
