@Jmcloughlin84 thanks for reaching out about when our REI store in Vermont will reopen!

Unfortunately, we do not have any specific updates that we can share about reopening plans for our this location. As you may have seen in earlier responses in the community, as we move to expand our services, we will base our progress on four very important factors:  

  1. Our ability to establish a set of detailed health and safety protocols
  2. Local community readiness
  3. Federal, state and local guidelines and restrictions
  4. Facility and team operational readiness

Your best resource on what's available at your current store will be the local store page on While our stores remain closed, returns can be processed through the mail, noting that processing times are longer than normal due to a higher volume than normal.

Hope this helps!

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