Boston Marathon bombing: Williams-Sonoma pulls pressure cookers

April 23, 2013 at 3:38 PM

High-end cookware and home goods retailer Williams-Sonoma has pulled pressure cookers from their shelves following the Boston Marathon bombing.

"It's a temporary thing out of respect," the store manager of a Williams-Sonoma in Natick, Mass., told Patch.

Pressure cookers will still be available on the Williams-Sonoma website. Competitor Crate & Barrel is still selling the cookers in their stores, but an employee at the same Natick mall said they hadn't sold any recently.

Both stores observed the statewide moment of silence yesterday and wore Boston sports gear to work Friday.
