Rogers, Bentonville, Fayetteville, would all work. Fayetteville is a college town. Bentonville is the self proclaimed Mt bike capital of the world. Nwa has everything outdoors and is a perfect fit for rei. I'm tired of having to drive 3 hours to go to one.
Hey @Jwhart - Thanks for reaching out and taking the time to give us this feedback. We'll make sure to pass along your suggestion. So true about NW Arkansas having everything outdoors! I'm originally from the South and have always enjoyed climbing and kayaking in the Ozarks.
With that closest store three hours away, our free virtual outfitting appointments might be the perfect option to save you from the long drive. They’re a great way to get that Green Vest expertise without leaving home.
Thanks again for sending this feedback to us and hope this helps!
@Jwhart I know the drive isn't fun, but Memphis welcomes you with open arms. 😄 I have yet to get out to NWAR, but did a MTB clinic in Fayetteville last October. I loved the trails system y'all have!
I second this request!! I’m considering a move from Washington, DC back home to AR and one of the things I’m going to miss most is our flagship store here! It’s a dream. NWA truly seems like the perfect place for an REI!
Definitely need an REI here in Northwest Arkansas. I do my gear shopping online, but nothing beats the REI instore visits. I always stop in available REI when on backpacking adventures in other states. Wish we had one here in Arkansas - Rogers or Fayetteville.
