REI Opens New Store in Pike & Rose (VIDEO)

REI Co-op opened its new 38,000-square-foot Pike & Rose location last week.

The store provides bicycles, camping gear, kayaks, outdoor apparel and other ways to enjoy the outdoors. It also has a community center and a place for customers to trace maps onto wax paper.

REI had a location farther north on Rockville Pike.

“We felt that with this neighborhood it was a good fit,” manager Heidi Poulson said.
