REI Gearing up to Open Location at The Summit

A popular outdoor retailer is planning to enter the Magic City market this year.

As REI Co-op gears up to open its first Alabama location at MidCity Huntsville this September, the Washington state retailer is also planning for a second store at The Summit in October 2019. The company plans to hire nearly 50 employees for the new location.

“Over the last eight years in Birmingham, more than 100 miles of trails have been implemented, from the iconic Rotary Trail, to the Red Rock Trail System, and beyond,” said Krista Wood, leasing manager at Bayer Properties. “Birmingham is a very active community that will greatly benefit from the addition of REI to The Summit.”
