Our stores have always been the heart of our business. Every day around the country, Sur La Table teams share cooking's power to connect us and create happiness with customers. That's why it saddens us that at a time when people need comfort and support more than ever, we've made the difficult decision to temporarily close our stores, effective March 20 through at least April 2. Everyone's lives are being impacted by the spread of COVID-19, including all of us here at Sur La Table. Concern for our customers' and employees' health and well-being has always been our top priority. We rely greatly on our stores and the people there who depend on us.

We also want to be a resource for our customers in happy and hard times, which we're surely in now. Everyone here at Sur La Table encourages you to still make space for home cooking, for enjoying a glass of wine, for baking treats. As we have for 48 years, Sur La Table will continue to be a place that helps you do these things. We’re creating resources to help you cook at home (which we’re all doing more these days), including some of our favorite recipes and meal prep ideas. Please join us there, as we’ll be updating content regularly. Our sincerest hope is that very soon, you'll be able to come back into our stores, where our community truly thrives.

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 things have changed.

We have already closed many stores and cancelled our cooking classes across the country. If you are wondering if your local Sur La Table store is open, please use our Find a Store page for the latest status. We will keep things updated as fast as we can.

For our stores that remain open, we will continue follow strict CDC and local public health guidance to keep our customers, employees, and community safe and healthy. That is our highest priority. And, we want to provide local jobs and a place to find food items and home cooking supplies as long as it is safe to do so.

This is a time of great uncertainty for all of us. There are so many unknowns as things change from hour to hour, city to city. But here’s one thing we know for sure: this is a time to cook at home. We’re adding new resources on our website to help you prepare, cook and find comfort.

And, we’ll share more each day as we all take this one day at a time. Take care of yourself and each other—and keep cooking. There’s no better time for this simple offering of generosity and grace.

From all of us at Sur La Table
