Most Recreational Equipment Incorporated stores will be CLOSED on Black Friday 2016. The Day after Thanksgiving is the traditional start of the Christmas shopping season. However, REI has decided to remain closed on November 25. They are asking their customers to enjoy the day outdoors instead of at the stores and malls. REI will also be closed on Thanksgiving Day: Thursday, November 24.
This year, Black Friday becomes “Black Saturday” at REI. The traditional Thanksgiving weekend sales and promotions will begin on Saturday, November 26.
