The new REI Southlake store will officially open at Park Village in early November and the store is looking for employees. This is the retailer's first Tarrant County store, but third in the Metroplex.
The Seattle-based retailer is accepting applications online at http://rei-retail.jobs/.
Employees receive a variety of benefits, including product and service discounts, competitive pay and retirement contributions.
The store, at the southwest corner of Southlake Boulevard and Carroll Avenue, opens Friday, Nov. 7. Grand opening activities of events and giveaways will be held from Friday, Nov. 14 to Sunday, Nov. 16.
REI Southlake will sell top brands of outdoor gear and apparel for camping, climbing, cycling, fitness, hiking, paddling and travel, the retailer said. The 22,050-square-foot store will also feature a bike store for assembly and repairs.
When the store was announced last fall, REI said it planned to hire about 50 employees.
REI has been recognized as one of FORTUNE magazine’s 100 Best Companies to Work For for 17 consecutive years.
Park Village is an 18-acre development by Fort Worth-based Woodmont Co.
