After Bed Bath and Beyond announced they planned on closing 200 of their locations, another kitchen supply store announced they will be making closures as well. According to USA Today, Sur La Table has filed for bankruptcy and is planning to close almost half of its locations due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The article says that the retail chain has announced which locations will be closing - 2 of them are in NJ. The Marlton (Promenade at Sagemore) and Lawrenceville (Quaker Bridge Mall) locations will be shutting doors, according to USA Today. I paid a visit to the Sur La Table website, and after searching store locations in New Jersey, both of those stores had "Closing Permanently in August or September" next to their names. The only other location in New Jersey was the Garden State Plaza in Paramus, which has "Closed Permanently" written next to it. There was a location at the Freehold Raceway Mall, but that was closed earlier this year.

I always enjoyed stopping to look in Sur La Table with my Mom. It is a shame that so many stores are needing to make the decision to close because of the pandemic. I hope that the employees affected by this can find work again soon.
