At this time the Settler's Ridge and Yonkers stores are the only locations closing. We regularly assess our store locations and customer needs and have made the decision regarding those stores. This closure is not related to the COVID-19 pandemic and in no way reflects the health of the co-op at large – in fact, REI has opened seven new stores this year in addition to piloting two used gear pop-up stores.

We appreciate your concern, and for being a long-time member (and former employee!) of our co-op! 

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