Speciality outdoor retailer REI Co-op will expand its presence in the US by opening ten new stores in 2024 to better serve the co-op’s members and the broader outdoor community.
The first two are set to open in Glendale, Arizona and Rancho Mirage, California in the summer. Looking further ahead, there will be launches in Duranga, Colorado in spring 2025 and in St George, Utah, in the autumn of the same year.
The new stores will occupy previously used retail spaces including the Arrowhead Promenade in Glendale, The River in Rancho Mirage and St George Place in St George.
Each store will offer a comprehensive selection of apparel, gear and expert advice for outdoor activities including cycling, camping, fitness, running, hiking and climbing.
Each retail location will feature a full-service bike shop staffed by skilled technicians.
An upcoming store in Utah will cater to winter sports enthusiasts with a ski and snowboard shop.
