After the closure of numerous stores during the COVID-19 pandemic, Sur La Table has committed to reopening retail outlets across the country.

Among them is the much beloved retail location at Bayshore. The store, which is slated to open this spring, will return to its former location at 480 W. Northshore Dr.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Sur La Table back to Bayshore,” said Mary Mokwa, Sr. General Manager. “Sur La Table offers the perfect blend of retail and events that fit in perfectly to what we strive to offer our customers—community experiences that are unlike any other.”

The culinary retailer, which celebrated its 50th anniversary last year, will reopen offering a wide array of cookware, dinnerware, cutlery, kitchen electrics and bakeware. The store will also feature immersive in-store experiences, including its popular cooking classes. 

“We are thrilled to continue to grow our retail business and to give our customers local storefronts to spark their innovation in the kitchen,” said Jordan Voloshin, CEO of Sur La Table. 

“By expanding our retail footprint strategically, we’ve targeted specific markets providing new and familiar communities with a retail destination that offers the 50 years of cooking expertise that the brand is known for… Through our vast product offerings and in-store experiences we aim to provide our customers with a place where everyone who loves cooking and entertaining can feel right at home.”

Along with their retail expansion, Sur La Table has announced that it will continue to expand digital offerings for their customers, adding to offerings like “Lid & Ladle by Sur La Table,” an online experience featuring videos, tips and tricks for customers.
