The smallest state by population will soon be getting a retail presence from one of the largest outdoor retailers in the nation. By next summer, REI Co-op will open a 15,000-square-foot store in a former grocery store in Jackson.

For the uninitiated, REI is an outdoor gear store that largely has a presence in cities near abundant outdoor recreation like Salt Lake City, Denver, Seattle, et al. Despite the company bringing in net sales of $3.1 billion in 2019, many Wyomingites have probably never walked into an REI store.
