Countless things have changed since the first time we closed our doors on Black Friday five years ago. But one thing hasn't: the outdoors is still the best place to get some air, find some quiet, and feel human again. On November 27th, give yourself some space and #OptOutside. It might just make your day.
So let's hear it - how will you #OptOutside with us?! Share your stories and plans below.
We're glad to hear it! Do you have specific plans to get outside on Black Friday?
@REI-JohnJ I don't have any specific plans to get outside on Black Friday. I wish I did! I would love to go for a nice hike or a nature walk.
We don't have any specific plans either. I'm waiting to see what the weather does and if I'll be on my own or be able to bring the family with. Keep us posted!
Sounds great! Be sure to come back here with some photos to share your stoke!
I blew it...my wife had a couple honey do items and I ended up with a strained back and sat on a couch all weekend watching youtube of people doing what I was supposed to be doing....darn...
@Gary2 you still have time! #OptOutside is this coming Friday (aka Black Friday) - hope your back is feeling strong enough to get some time outside!
I think the #OptOutside closing on Black Friday is one of the greatest ideas and campaigns REI has ever come up with. If anyone doubts that, just look to see how many other companies are now following suit. If the weather is warm and dry, I will be cycling. If it cold and/or wet, I will be day hiking.
