Williams Sonoma[1]Retailer Williams-Sonoma (NYSE:WSM[2]) is removing pressure cookers from its stores near Boston.

The removal — which applies to stores in Massachusetts — is a temporary one, Patch.com reports[3].

“It’s a temporary thing out of respect,” the manager of a store in Natick said. The move is local and the cookware will still be available on the store’s website. He referred all other questions to the company’s corporate headquarters.

Another nearby store, Crate & Barrel, is continuing to sell pressure cookers. However, it did observe a moment of silence yesterday and asked employees to wear Boston-themed clothing to honor the victims.
