SEATTLE (WPRI/AP) — Cookware and kitchen chain Sur La Table is closing 56 of its 121 stores as it seeks bankruptcy protection, the latest retail casualty of the coronavirus pandemic.
The privately held Seattle-based company says it has agreed to sell its remaining stores to affiliates of Fortress Investment Group following the bankruptcy procedure and store closures.
Eyewitness News has learned its location inside Providence Place Mall will close in either August or September.
The post-sale company will also include its in-person and online cooking classes, and its e-commerce business.
Sur La Table had its start in Seattle’s Pike Place Market in 1972.
