REI is actively reviewing its policies and procedures per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's new guidance for COVID-19.
As we have since the start of the pandemic, we’ll continue to prioritize the health and safety of our employees, customers and communities.

REI is extending our temporary store closures until further notice

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.

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.

@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!

Are you continuing to pay your employees and/or continued benefits during this time?

 

@cwm thanks for connecting with us! REI employees are currently being paid.

That is GREAT!!!  Thank you for getting back and sharing that information...

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. 

@NSF because we believe in transparency, and in case you hadn't seen it yet, we are including an announcement that was made by our CEO on Monday with some updates about the co-op's business. Thank you for being members.

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. 

Thanks for the update! I appreciate the transparency. 

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!
