High-end cookware chain Sur La Table Inc. is preparing for a potential bankruptcy filing after the pandemic forced it to close stores and cancel cooking classes, according to people familiar with the matter.

The chain, with about 125 stores, is also pursuing a sale, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the process isn’t public.
