REI Garage Sale

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

While playing around on Facebook, one of my feeds is the REI in Bellingham, and they just announced they will be having their annual garage sale this Friday January 4th from 10 am to 4pm. You do need to be a member, but you are going to score some sweet deal. With any luck you will be able to find last year ski gear that didn't sell.

 

As a person who always misses out on these Garage Sales, I'm trying to help others find these great deals. Does anyone else have garage sale dates that are different in their main cities?

Haven't heard anything as to the SLC REI but I'll be having one in April and wanted to give everyone plenty of notice.

You won't need to be a member.

They're usually posted to the local REI events calendar - go to your local store and click on classes and events.

It's the same day for all of the Denver area stores.

I no longer spend money at REI since learning about their support of the sierra club (which is anti-mtb and OHV).

Oh I didn't know that! Pardon my curiosity, but how can a company that sells bikes, support a corporation that is anti mountain biking?

REI does not really cater to the hard core MTB'er.  Most who buy bikes there are just going to ride them on the bike path.  OTOH REI does a lot of business with hikers and campers who stand to benefit from the Sierra Club's agenda.

 

Mountain bikes not being allowed in wilderness areas (while horses and hikers are) is TOTAL BS.  The erosion excuse is just that.  Horses crap all over the trail, spreading weeds (hay contains a lot of weed seeds) and devastate the trail with their horse shoes.   OTOH MTB'er are some of the most environmentally conscious trail users you'll find. 

 

....sorry for the thread jack.  I just think people need to think about where their $$ are going.

Thanks for the laugh! Next you will say that they like sharing trails, are courteous with other users and are active with trail maintenance efforts. Hilarious...

Not sure if serious??

 

FatChance?  That brings back the memories.  My wife had a Yo Betty on demo, but ended up ordering up a Seven....  which we canceled after waiting two months with nothing to show....

Thanks for the reminder, I'll donate to the Sierra Club to help fund their efforts to keep mt bikes off wilderness trails (especially in national parks, where nearly half of our designated wilderness lands are).

 

I didn't know they still had garage sales. I remember when that was THE big thing and people would find such amazing deals they'd camp out the night before.

That's fine and certainly your prerogative.  Just don't fool yourself that horses cause less environmental impact than MTB's.

 

Ski resorts are mostly on public land (National Forest) leased by the resorts.  That *massive* environmental impact is obviously perfectly OK with you, but MTBs are not??
