MISSISSIPPI (WDAM) -

Payless Shoesource announced it is immediately shutting down approximately 400 stores in at least 44 states, as well as Washington, DC, and Puerto Rico.

The company posted its list of stores that were closing on its website, with eight of those stores being in Mississippi. 

The stores closing in Mississippi are: 

  • Hattiesburg 712 Bartur St. 
  • Brookhaven 981 Brookway Blvd

  • Yazoo City Yazooville Shpg Cntr

    Though soft-spoken, Steven Anderson hits hard. A "violent" runner as Southern Miss teammate Keon Howard describes him, perhaps Anderson is making up for all those years spent at quarterback. "Steven runs like he doesn't want to be hit no more,” Howard said.
