​FRIENDSWOOD - REI plans to open a store in the recently expanded Baybrook Mall this fall, giving outdoor adventurers in Clear Lake and Galveston a closer option.

The new 25,000-sf store will be the co-op's third Houston-area location, offering gear and apparel for hiking, biking, camping, kayaking, fitness and trail-running as well as classes through REI Outdoor School. 

"We're excited to increase our support of the local community and inspire people to get outside through our classes, gear and passion for the outdoors," Ann Bewley, REI Outdoor Programs and Outreach market coordinator for the Houston area said in an announcement. 

The company said it plans to hire 50 people at the new store.

While you are waiting for REI, sign up for fun this weekend for Land of the Free. At REI, we believe that a life outdoors is a life well lived. ​
