Seattle-based REI will open a new store in Fairbanks, Alaska, in spring 2014. The 30,000-sq.-ft. store will mark the outdoor retailer’s second store to open in Alaska since opening its Anchorage store in 1979. The store will house a bike shop, and a ski and snowboard shop offering assembly and repair services. The location also will host free in-store classes. REI currently operates 133 stores in 33 states.
