REI Co-op, the specialty outdoor retailer with more than a dozen locations in Northern California, will relocate its Mountain View, California, store to Sunnyvale this fall.
The 37,000 square-foot space will be located at 130 E El Camino Real. The new location will be nearly 7,000 square-feet larger than the current Mountain View location, enabling the co-op to offer a wider assortment of quality gear and expertise for the South Bay’s most popular outdoor activities. REI Sunnyvale also will feature an expanded professional bike, ski and snowboard shops, and a new community space.
“Our store team is incredibly excited about the relocation and eager to get more involved with the Sunnyvale community. The Sunnyvale location will provide more than 1.4 million lifetime REI members in Northern California with the gear and resources to enjoy the outdoors in the South Bay,” said Kirk Peterson, REI regional director for Northern California. “We are looking forward to welcoming the community into the new space and have the opportunity to connect, inspire, and enable a life outside for even more people.”
REI has helped more than 110,000 people connect to the outdoors in Northern California through its guided outdoor experiences, classes and events in the last five years. The co-op will continue to offer a range of virtual classes and workshops, and in-person guided programs to connect people to a life outdoors including Introduction to Mountain Biking, Kayak Tours, Rock Climbing Classes and Tours, How to Ride a Bike Classes, Hiking Tours and more.
For people looking to try a new activity, REI Sunnyvale will offer a large selection of outdoor rental equipment to give customers a chance to explore products before purchasing.
REI Sunnyvale will be located less than seven miles from the current store in Mountain View. Customers in the South Bay also have the option to shop at REI San Carlos, less than 12 miles from REI Mountain View, and REI Saratoga, less than 14 miles from REI Mountain View.
