The main activity of REI is to resale products accrued from various manufacturers.
It would be useful to know the email and the address for classical mail, of the department that receives samples for evaluation, to consider their possible acquisition in order to be sold by REI.
It is obvious that REI deals with many small companies that design and produce hiking and camping products, and chances are that these small companies were the ones who first contacted REI, and not vice-versa.
Post COVID-19, this answer is not accurate. While we completely understand putting the current program on hold, as things move forward, how can we reach out to REI to sell a (wonderful) product?
Thank you for all that you do for love of the wild.
@ChangetheWorldBooks thanks for the follow-up question! While we work on next steps for the Innovator Series, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org with information about the product you are interested in having REI carry. Please include your name and contact information, the product name and company website, and reasons why you love the product. Although we do review all suggestions, we aren't able to respond to all. Thanks for thinking of the co-op as a place for your product!
