Regional footwear chain Shoe Pavilion is going out of business and holding liquidation stores at its remaining 64 locations. Shoe Pavilion, once the largest off-price independent footwear store on the west coast, had 117 stores at its peak. The 29-year-old chain filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in July in advance of the liquidation.

Hawaiian clothing and souvenir retailer Hilo Hattie filed for bankruptcy protection Thursday, citing "the rapidly deteriorating economy, historic oil price levels, and the weakening of Hawaii's tourist-driven economy." The nine-store chain, which operates as a subsidiary of a parent company, plans to restructure its debt without closing stores or laying off employees.
