REI to open in Dublin, Calif.

Seattle -- REI on Thursday announced plans to open a new store in Dublin, Calif., at Amador Plaza in the fall of 2011.

The one-story, nearly 24,000-sq.-ft. store will feature a bike shop and a seasonal gear rental department for customers to test out new outdoor activities.

“The Dublin store will provide us the opportunity to bring our friendly expertise and quality outdoor products closer [than the current Berkley store] to the more than 42,500 active REI members that live within 15 miles of the new location,” said Tim Spangler, REI’s VP retail.
