For the third year in a row, instead of opening its doors on Black Friday, REI is closed and encouraging Americans to #optoutside and enjoy the outdoors with family and friends.
It'll also be paying all of its 12,000 employees to #optoutside as well.
REI says more than 700 organizations and nearly eight million people have joined #optoutside over the past two years.
The closest REI location to the Capital Region is in Connecticut.
