Beginning in the spring of 2014, Alaskans can gear up for their outdoor adventures at a new REI location in Fairbanks, Alaska. The 30,000 square foot store will be located at the southwest corner of Old Steese Highway and College Avenue.
In addition to the usual list of top brands of camping, climbing, cycling, fitness, hiking, paddling, snow sports and travel products, the new Fairbanks store will house a bike shop and ski and snowboard shop to offer expert assembly and repair services, and host free in-store classes.
REI will hire approximately 50 new employees for its new Fairbanks store. Interested candidates can sign up online to be notified when REI begins accepting applications. REI opened its first Alaska door, in Anchorage, in 1980.
