Co-op will continue to invest in local outdoor places, including $160,000 in local Colorado nonprofits this year
“The REI Englewood team is very excited to continue to serve our members and customers in the southern Denver metro communities at our new Greenwood Village store this fall,” said store manager Kris Reale. “To be able to support this outdoor community in a larger space just a couple miles from our current location will help all of us to inspire each other to get outside. This new store will show how we bring the outdoors in and connect the local community to a life outdoors. We can’t wait for this fall when we can join the community at the new Greenwood Village co-op.”
The new store will be located in Greenwood Village on Arapahoe Road and I-25, less than five miles from the current location. At 45,000 square feet, the store will offer a wider selection of gear for the region’s most popular outdoor activities, including mountain biking, climbing and snow sports. The store will feature a bike shop and ski and snowboard shop for maintenance and repairs from highly trained experts. REI has eight other stores throughout Colorado, with nearby locations in Denver (15 miles away), Lakewood (20 miles) and Colorado Springs (49 miles). The co-op also opened a new store in Dillon, Colorado on May 5.
REI Outdoor School will continue to offer a robust schedule of in-store and field classes and experiences for mountain biking, hiking, climbing, backpacking, snow-sports and more. In addition the store will host presentations by well-known authors and athletes. The majority of programming will be free, as is the case at REI stores across the country. Across the Front Range, REI Outdoor School’s programming increased by more than 28% over the last year in its focus to help people live a life outside. This summer, join REI Outdoor School across the Front Range for an array of programs designed for women, including Force Wednesday events at the co-op’s flagship in Denver.
REI opened its Englewood location in 1998 and has developed strong relationships throughout the Colorado outdoor community since first coming to Denver in 1983. In 2017, REI plans to invest $160,000 in local nonprofits that steward and increase access to nearby outdoor places. REI teams will support a series of trail service projects this summer, leading up to the co-op’s sponsorship of the Golden Giddyup mountain bike festival in September. REI also partners with nonprofits that impact some of the state’s most iconic outdoor places, including the Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado, Colorado Youth Corps Association and the Colorado Fourteeners Initiative, and most recently the Friends of Dillon Ranger District.
