The 39,000-square-foot, three-floor space will have a bike shop and “Outdoor School” courses in addition to its stock of apparel and gear when it opens in the fall of 2011. Recreational Equipment currently has 112 retail stores nationwide and is undergoing an expansion in the Tri-State area, with a Norwalk, Conn. store slated to open next month and additional locations in the region expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
