B. Riley Financial’s Great American Group, SB360 Capital Partners and Tiger Capital Group to Lead Store Closing Sales Event
LOS ANGELES, September 11, 2020 – B. Riley Financial, Inc.’s (NASDAQ:RILY) (“B. Riley”) Great American Group, SB360 Capital Partners and Tiger Capital Group today announced that store closing sales started August 28th at an additional 17 Sur La Table retail locations across the United States. The retail chain previously earmarked 56 stores for closure in bankruptcy as part of its plan of restructuring to optimize its retail footprint.
Founded in Seattle’s Pike Place Market in 1972, Sur La Table is a leading retail chain that offers high-end kitchenware products, including cookware, cutlery, cooks’ tools, small electrics, tabletop and linens, bakeware, glassware and bar, housewares, food, and outdoor goods.
As part of the liquidation sale, customers can expect initial discounts of up to 30%-off original prices on all in-store merchandise in the locations being closed.
“Sur La Table has partnered with the world’s best chefs and kitchen brands to bring customers trusted tools to make delicious memories. And with Marquee Brands and CSC Generation as the new owners of Sur La Table, the brand will be revitalized and better positioned to thrive in a post-COVID-19 retail environment. We encourage customers to shop early for the very best selection as the store closing sales will only last through the end of September,” said Scott Carpenter, CEO of Retail Solutions at B. Riley’s Great American Group (soon to be rebranded as B. Riley Retail Solutions). “We are committed to providing customers with the same great in-store experience they have come to expect during this store closing sales event. Safety measures are in place to create a safe and healthy space for our shoppers.”
Liquidation sales in the closing store locations are expected to last approximately five weeks, or until all merchandise is sold. The length of the sale will vary by location. Store furniture, fixtures and equipment will also be available for purchase in certain locations.
All purchases made at closing stores during the liquidation sale will be final. For information regarding gift cards, returns, and coupons, including SLT Perks earnings, view Sur La Table’s customer FAQs at https://www.surlatable.com/faqs.html.
Last month, a joint venture by global brand owner, marketer and media company Marquee Brands and CSC Generation, a multi-brand technology platform, bought the remaining Sur La Table stores, brand and all related intellectual property. Sur La Table continues to operate over 55 locations across the country where it’s business as usual.
