Seattle -- REI announced plans to open a store in Knoxville, Tenn., in fall 2014.

The 23,500-sq.-ft. store, at Papermill Plaza, will include a bike shop that provides expert assembly and repair services, and a community space to host outdoor-related classes, presentations and events.

“As an outdoor retailer, REI is committed to inspiring and educating people to lead active lifestyles,” said Gail Kirkland, REI retail director for the South district. “Our expertise, programming and products will enhance anyone’s trips to explore outdoor places, like Great Smoky Mountains National Park.”
