In addition to its retail operations, REI also operates a number of outdoor programs, including guided trips, outdoor classes and events, and community outreach programs. These programs are designed to help people of all skill levels and backgrounds to get outside and enjoy nature.

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these REI statistics come from their own reports, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. No information contained on DMR should be relied upon to make investment decisions. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100%.
