A Bayside shoe store will step out of its storefront for good next month.

Payless ShoeSource, located at 42-10 Bell Blvd., will officially close for business on Monday, July 10, an employee told QNS. The store is offering its selection of shoes, handbags and accessories for women, men and children at discounts of up to 40 percent off.

The closure comes a few months after the discount shoe retailer announced that it would close hundreds of stores after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protections.

Other Queens stores that may be subject to closure “pending ongoing negotiations” are 31-22 Farrington St. in Flushing, 22-48 31st St. in Astoria and 37-40 74th St. in Jackson Heights, according to the Payless website.
