Volume Shoesource Renamed Payless Shoesource

SEATTLE - Volume ShoeSource stores in Washington and Oregon are undergoing a name change to Payless ShoeSource.

The change will give the stores the same name as others in the chain, which remains a division of St. Louis-based May Department Stores Co. The change will affect 79 stores in Washington.

Signs will be changed between now and mid-November to reflect the new name, Payless said.

Payless ShoeSource operates nearly 3,900 stores in 49 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
