[UPDATED] Payless, GameStop to Close Hundreds of Stores including one local store

Anyone that has been a kid in the last, I don't know, 40 or 50 years (?!) you, I'm sure would head to Payless Shoes for your Easter Oxford Saddles. You know what I'm talking about, the white and black shoes that everyone just had to have. The reverse Oreo, if you will.
