ALEXANDRIA, VA — Sur La Table, a high-end kitchenware store that also hosts cooking classes, will close its Alexandria location at the end of September.
Sur La Table is a Seattle-based chain founded in 1972 that sells high-end kitchenware, such as cookware, cutlery, cooks' tools, small electrics, tabletop and linens, bakeware, glassware and bar, housewares, food, and outdoor goods. In July, Sur La Table announced it was filing for bankruptcy as part of a plan to restructure and optimize its retail footprint.
At the time, the Washington Post reported that the chain planned to close 56 of 112 stores. An additional 17 locations were announced with closing sales on Sept. 11. Amid the latest announcement of closures, Marquee Brands and CSC Generation were identified as the new owners of Sur La Table and will look to revitalize the brand behind the pandemic.
The upcoming closing of the 326 King Street location is listed on the chain's website. Closing locations have liquidation sales with initial discounts of up to 30 percent off regular prices in store. Select locations have resumed cooking classes in person, but the Alexandria location is not currently offering classes. There are two other locations in Northern Virginia: Tysons Galleria and Pentagon Row.
