REI Co-op announced its expansion plans to open ten new stores in 2024. The retailer finalized the locations for summer 2024 openings in Glendale, AZ and Rancho Mirage, CA. A store in St. George, UT is expected to open in fall 2025.
The co-op will open the stores in formerly occupied retail spaces at Arrowhead Promenade in Glendale, The River in Rancho Mirage, and St. George Place in St. George. The St. George Place store will include a ski and snowboard shop.
“Each of these communities has an abundance of easily accessible natural places to play in addition to proximity to iconic national parks where REI currently guides active adventures,” said Mary-Farrell Tarbox, VP of stores for REI. “We look forward to serving as a welcoming resource to everyone through our staff’s expertise and broad product assortment. As we do in every community where we have a presence, we will also establish nonprofit partnerships to support their efforts to help get more people outside.”
The stores REI will open in 2024 include:
- Spring: Beavercreek, OH and Beaverton, OR
- Summer: Glendale, AZ; Ithaca, NY; and Rancho Mirage, CA
- Fall: Albany, NY and Tulsa, OK
REI reported it will provide details of three additional stores it plans to open this year when the contracts are finalized. It announced two stores for 2025—Durango, CO (Spring 2025) and St. George, Utah (Fall 2025).
