“This location will feature a new look and design that is both high tech and attractive, showcasing how important the executives at Payless felt The Gateway Towne Center in Compton was to the overall growth of our brand,” said William Wilson, the store manager for the Compton Payless Shoe Source.

Gifts, prizes and discount coupons will be given away to local residents during the Grand Opening.
