All 4 Portland REI locations will be having a great sale on returned equipment on Saturday, December 29th from 9am-2pm.
At the Program Training Conference we spoke to a scouter who scored a $200 tent for about 78 cents…yes 78 cents.
The advice from PTC…come early for best selection. If you want to get in the store at 9am…come well before 9am. There is usually a large line as only a certain number of people are allowed into the store at one time. Open things and look at them to see why they may have been returned…it could be just a cosmetic scratch, it could need something like a new tent pole.
