Sur La Table announces closing of The Summit location

Sur La Table

Sur La Table has filed for bankruptcy protection after temporary store closures related to the coronavirus pandemic. The company announced plans on Wednesday to close fifty-one of its one hundred and twenty-one stores nationwide. The location at The Summit in Birmingham has been selected as one of the stores set to permanently close. The company says the store closings are the result of the financial impact of the COVID-19 crisis.

A note to our community. ❤️ Sur La Table opened its doors in Seattle’s historic Pike Place Market nearly 50 years ago, inspired by our founder Shirley Collins’ love of cooking. That inspiration remains strong, but a lot has changed since then. Today, we took an important step to ensure a bright future for Sur La Table. While things are different now, our mission remains the same: to create happiness through cooking and sharing good food. We continue to be here for you 24/7 at and in many of our stores.

Sur La Table will not offer their popular cooking classes at any of the locations that are set to close with the location at The Summit not currently offering any classes. If you previously signed up for a cooking class that was cancelled you will need to call the Sur La Table customer service team at 800-243-0852 or request a refund in person by visiting the store.

Liquidation sale

Going out of business liquidation sales are expected to last approximately eight to twelve weeks. It’s important to know that all purchases made during the liquidation sales are final.

Also, while gift cards will continue to be accepted through August 7, 2020, the location at The Summit will not be accepting coupons, including SLT PERKS earnings. If you have SLT PERKS earnings that you’d like to use you can still use them on online orders.

About Sur La Table:

Our company started with a simple idea: Make good food. Share it. Do so often. Sur La Table is as close to this mission today as the day we opened our doors in Seattle’s Pike Place Market in 1972. From the beginning, our founder Shirley Collins partnered with the world’s best chefs and kitchen brands to bring customers trusted tools to make delicious memories.

Our resident chefs teach 60,000 cooking classes a year to more than 700,000 people in our kitchens and now online. With 121 stores across the US and many local cooking schools, Sur La Table is a resource for cooks of all levels. And we continue to create happiness through cooking and sharing good food. Make More Gather Often. That’s our invitation to you.
