REI is responding to the rapidly changing COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) situation with a clear focus on the safety and well-being of employees and customers. We have assembled internal and external teams to advise us on appropriate policies and decisions, and are acting with caution to ensure that we are putting people first.
As a result, we are extending our temporary store closures until further notice.
We will continue to share information regularly as this situation evolves, including posting updates here in the community. You can also review our FAQs for more detail.
@CoffeeMonster hmmm, we'll follow up with you via Direct Message to get more information and see if we can get you connected to the right person!
@cwm thanks for connecting with us! REI employees are currently being paid.
So great to hear that you are still paying your employees! 👏 Thank you for doing the right things & glad both me & my partner are members & will continue to make purchases.
Well, thank you for the transparency. It’s tough, I imagine & I’m sorry for those who will be furloughed. I am grateful they will keep their benefits. And that those at the top are also taking cuts. Best wishes.
Thank you for putting people first! I have unused dividends, does REÍ have a dividend donation program for those negatively impacted by COVID-19? Give back to the employees or to the community? I don’t have much in dividends but collectively we could make a difference.
@tbventura Thanks for reaching out and thank you for the thoughtful question!
It’s questions like these that make us so proud to be part of the co-op community. If you’d like to contribute to the outdoor community, consider a donation to one of our nonprofit partners. Many nonprofits are hurting right now, and they would certainly love your support.
Thank you again!
