A Payless ShoeSource store is pictured in Manhattan April 4, 2017.

Shoe retailer Payless ShoeSource said it plans to close stores in Frazer, Lower Burrell, Mt. Pleasant and two other Western Pennsylvania locations.

The chain filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, and said it will be immediately closing nearly 400 stores as part of its reorganization. The Topeka, Kan.-based company has more than 4,400 stores in more than 30 countries and was founded in 1956.

The Frazer store is in the Pittsburgh Mills mall, and the Lower Burrell store is on Wildlife Lodge Road. The Mt. Pleasant store is in the Countryside Shopping Center. Stores in the Washington Crown Center mall in North Franklin, Washington County, and in the Aliquippa Shopping Center in Aliquippa also are closing, according to a list on the company’s website.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
