@Highlander51 Thanks for reaching out!
It is possible for you to purchase a gift for your friend and have it picked up in the Olympia location! When you check out on REI.com, you'll want to select the 'pick up in store' option, and then choose the Olympia store. That will make sure the items are delivered to that location. Once your order has arrived, you'll want to give the store a call (360-786-1938) and let them know that someone else will be picking up the items. Finally, make sure you forward the email confirmation to your friend so they can show that at pick-up. You'll be all set after that!
I hope this helps, thanks!
