Sur La Table, the well known purveyor of high end kitchen goods, has officially filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on Wednesday July 8. They have already announced that at least 50 of the existing 120 stores will close their doors. Sur La Table was forced to close due to Covid-19 restrictions with other retailers. As many locations have reopened, Sur La Table has been unable to restart their cooking classes because of the Coronavirus, a big hit to their in store experience. CEO Jason Goldberg has said that the process “will result in a revitalized Sur La Table, positioned to thrive in a post Covid-19 retail environment.”

Sur La Table has entered into an agreement with Fortress investment group, seeking a possible purchaser. For a full list of locations to be closed, see below:
