Not really. Based on Irv's stories, they have been failing for a good 4 - 5 years. Management was either slow to realize it, or (per one article I saw) kept it on life support so they could milk it for all it was worth.

About 1/3 of the ones around here closed on Sunday. I know of two more this Sunday and the last should be gone a week after that.

It's a weird feeling seeing them closed, even though I never went to them.

Wow! That was fast.
They could not find a buyer. They were originally going to keep a few stores (not sure of the number) going if they found a buyer. my local mall now has lost 2 major anchor stores in less than a year because of bankruptcy and all stores closing.

The swamp's last day of business was yesterday.

Apparently the optical business will be saved and eventually moving to a new location; until then I guess it will operate in the otherwise-vacant building.

The local Swamps are either 50% or 70% clearance prices now.

Won't be long now.

I was thinking about going yesterday, I think. I don't think it's sunk in that I won't be able to go in there to get Payless shoes. Well, I won't be able to go anywhere for those.

Huh? There's still a Payless in my town; I picked up dinner the other day from the restaurant that's right next to it!

Yep, Payless is going going gong! My kids little sister has a work scholarship from them that's evaporated.

What, really? *googles* Oh wow, they are. I hardly ever shopped at Payless but that's still rather sad.
