Payless ShoeSource filed for bankruptcy on Tuesday and about 400 stores will be closing in the United States.  

According to Jezebel, the retail business is in a tough spot right now and the closings are necessary.

“This is a difficult, but necessary, decision driven by the continued challenges of the retail environment, which will only intensify,” Payless chief executive W. Paul Jones said in a statement. “We will build a stronger Payless for our customers, vendors and suppliers, associates, business partners and other stakeholders through this process.”
