Payless ShoeSource announced just how long they will be honoring gift cards and merchandise credits while they prepare to close all of their stores.

Earlier this year we found out that Payless ShoeSource was filing bankruptcy and the stores were going to close.

Most customers have two questions when they hear about stores closing... when are the sales and when can I use my gift cards until?

The sales have begun, with their website confirming that every one of their locations are closing.

The sales vary from store to store... I wear an 8.5 if you see anything cute... and today we are finding out that your merchandise credits and gift cards will be usable until March 11.

According to this AP article, if you bought something before February 17 you can still return and exchange the item through the end of February, and you will have until March 11 to use whatever store credit and gift cards you may have.

There isn't a hard closing date listed anywhere but I have a feeling that March 11 date means some stores will be closing on that date.
