REI Co-op is opening its fourth location in New York and seventh in the Tri-State region.

The specialty outdoor retailer will open a 21,100-sq.-ft. store at Huntington Shopping Center in Huntington, New York in summer 2023. The location will offer a wide assortment of apparel, gear and expertise for camping, cycling, running, fitness, hiking, paddling, climbing, snowsports and more.

In addition, REI Huntington will feature a full-service bike shop will be staffed by certified mechanics. It will also have a ski and snowboard shop offering professional tuning, waxing and repairs.

“We’ve long been interested in better serving the Long Island outdoor community and in complement to our existing Tri-State stores,” said Sean Sampson, REI regional director. “As we do in every community where the co-op has a presence, our local team will seek partnerships with nonprofits to support their efforts in protecting natural places and welcoming more people outside.” 

The new store will join other REI locations in the Tri-State area, including  Carle Place, N.Y.;Manhattan; Paramus, N.J.; Norwalk, Conn.; East Hanover, N.J.;  and Milford, Conn.

“REI is a terrific addition to our evolving line-up at Huntington Shopping Center and brings us closer to our vision of providing a dynamic mix of essential resources to the community as part of our center-wide redevelopment,” said Chris Fleming, VP at Federal Realty. “Their brand and customer appeal aligns well with the tenants we'll continue to unveil.”

REI, which has made Black Friday a permanent holiday for all its employees,  partners with nonprofits across the nation to steward and maintain local trails and public lands to connect more people to the outdoors. Last year, retailer  invested $7.1 million in more than 450 nonprofits across the country. During the last five years, it has invested more than $745,000 in New York-based land agencies and nonprofit partners.

REI launched the REI Cooperative Action Fund last year, a community-supported public charity designed to harness the collective power of the co-op’s members and employees to build a more just, equitable and inclusive outdoor culture.
