“We are excited to grand open our first-ever stores in the Middle East and to bring shoppers in Kuwait and Saudi Arabia all that Payless has to offer — great style, quality and brand names – all at a great price,” said Matthew Rubel, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President of Collective Brands, Inc., which owns Payless ShoeSource. “These grand openings represent a significant milestone in the international expansion of our Payless stores, as well as many firsts for Payless – our entrance into the Middle East, the Eastern Hemisphere, and to franchise our stores. We are pleased to have such a tremendous franchisee in Alshaya, with its significant retail expertise, infrastructure and deep knowledge of the region.”
