I really like shopping at Payless. I can always walk out of the store with something, as they sell so many great styles of shoes. I have purchased sandals, sneakers, boots, and children's shoes - and am always impressed. The quality is amazing, and the prices are always decent. I also love their accessories, super cute stuff.
I typically stop in this store if I'm looking to buy a cute pair of shoes - any style! I've bought boots, runners, flats and heels from here. I think I've even bought some bright shoelaces and socks. The service is usually friendly; I did meet one lady at the cash who wasn't too pleasant, but that seems like it's an unusual thing for this store. The staff are helpful and mostly greet you when you walk in. If you need help finding a style or a size, they can usually help.
I had an experience last week when I was shopping for skate shoes with my brother, and they didn't have his size in the only style he liked (he's picky). So, the cashier offered to call up the closest store in Hamilton to see if they had the size. It turns out they did, so we got her to put it on hold for us. I love customer service like that; that's the way it should be.
In terms of my shopping experiences, most of the prices are good, and I usually find a few pairs of shoes per shopping trip I want to take home with me. I'm also picky, so it's nice to see at least some stores can cater to my tastes. I do wish that some of the more appealing shoes weren't so expensive, but perhaps I have expensive tastes. :)
You can't really go wrong looking in this store for shoes before anywhere else. They're typically the cheapest in either of the malls in my town, and if I don't find anything there (which I usually do), there are still other places to look. No harm, no foul.
