Apparently REI is going through a round of layoffs this week. I also visited the store yesterday to pick up some water bottles, and the bike section was a bit more sad than usual. A lot of stock was missing and the layout felt empty. Hopefully it’s just because for most people we’re getting out of cycling season, but it had me a bit concerned for REI. It’s a great store that I enjoy shopping at, and I hope that it isn’t in some decline that it can’t pull out of it.
