REI Flagship Store exterior outside of the main entrance



The massive flagship store for REI is in the Cascade neighborhood adjacent to downtown Seattle and it attracts a lot of tourists.  With 80,000 square feet of floor space and staffed with 380 employees, this is an REI store on steroids.  If you can’t find a piece of clothing or equipment for the outdoors in this store, it probably doesn’t exist.

The landscaping for the REI store is impressive.  The landscaping looks like you are walking through a forest and it comes with a nice waterfall feature.
