NATICK – A Seattle-based retailer specializing in kitchen good with close more than 56 of its 112 stores, including its location at the Natick Mall.
Sur La Table announced the closures as it filed for bankruptcy protection.
The chain which started in Seattle’s Pike Place Market in 1972, offered in-person cooking classes, as well.
The Chapter 11 filing submitted late Wednesday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court listed between $100 million and $500 million in both estimated assets and liabilities.
Sur La Table’s website says many of its stores have reopened under local and federal guidelines related to COVID-19. Stores closing will begin sales soon.
“This sale process will result in a revitalized Sur La Table, positioned to thrive in a post COVID-19 retail environment,” said CEO Jason Goldberger.
Liquidation sales are expected to last 8 to 12 weeks, announced the cookware & kitchen retailer.
Stores closing in Massachusetts besides Natick include Chesnut Hill and Copley Square in Boston.
