REI to close again for Black Friday

REI to close again for Black Friday

REI won't be letting customers into any of its 149 physical retail locations on Black Friday of this year.

Rowe says the mall sees most of its traffic on Black Friday, but shoppers still come out for Thanksgiving Day deals.

Outdoor co-op retailer REI announced its plans to keep its doors closed for both Thanksgiving and Black Friday for the second year in a row.

Yet while the idea attracted publicity and warm, fuzzy feelings from shoppers past year, especially the part where the retailer will be paying employees for the day off, only fellow Seattle-based outdoors retailer Outdoor Research has stepped forward to join REI in this quest.

Anyone interested in shopping at Macy's, or any other store that remains open at the mall, will have to enter through the parking lot side of the store and not the interior entrance of the mall. The movement is created to let employees have time to spend outside with their families and loved ones during the Thanksgiving holiday. A network of organizations have already committed to head outside instead of shopping.
