High-end kitchenware store Sur La Table has joined a fast-growing list of companies filing for bankruptcy as coronavirus has dogged sales.

While details of the liquidation sales haven’t been disclosed yet, the Twitterverse is sharing that the closing stores will come out of the gate with up to 60% off.
These sales will run until September at the earliest, with the best prices coming at the end. Learn more about the do’s and don’ts of liquidation sales.
You can still get a decent deal at Sur La Table’s website — with a discounted gift card.
If you can’t wait for your local store’s liquidation sale, or if there isn’t going to be one anywhere near you, the clearance section of surlatable.com is worth checking out.
I found a $281 knife block set for $70, a midcentury-style acrylic bowl for $0.99 (reg. $5.50), and an $8 peeler for just $2.
And regardless of if you’re buying online or at the liquidation sale, you’ll want to keep an eye out for discounted Sur La Table gift cards at Raise.com. They’re in small supply but give you instant discounts.
Tip: If you’ve never bought from Raise, use the coupon code FIRST on your first order to save an extra 10% on your gift card purchase.
