Memphis residents can’t wait for the opening of a new REI in Ridgeway Trace Center. And apparently, neither could the company, which recently moved the opening date up from October 2018 to Aug. 24. REI, a member-owned co-op, is now looking for employees at the new location.
As a business, REI prides itself on community involvement, donating 70 percent of profits to the outdoor community. The retailer has three other locations in the state.
Memphians should keep their eyes out for a parking lot party in August – REI tends to host these events when opening a new store.
