What Is REI Garage Sale?
The REI garage sale is a clearance sale that each store holds in its parking lot to sell returned items at hugely discounted prices.
REI offers a one-year hassle-free return policy, so most items that are being sold are returned still new and unused for whatever the reason.
The words have gotten out that REI Co-op members can purchase brand new gear for half the price at the garage sales.
Consequently, the REI garage sale has become a popular event with people camping out the night before to be the first in line.

But, if you are dead set on getting there through the REI site, here are the steps you'll need to take.
First, you will need to go to the REI Garage Sale page.
Once there, click on the 'Check your store for details' button.
Find your store on the REI store locator and directory page by selecting the state your store is in. Please select your store to be taken to the page with its classes, tours, and events.
REI stores can have multiple garage sale dates, and the default sort on this page is by date.
To more easily find the upcoming garage sale dates, you can change the sort function from date to 'Name: A-Z.'
Once you sort the classes, tours, and events alphabetically, move through the pages and look for the M's.
You will see the title of 'Members Only Garage Sale!' with the upcoming time and date if your store has any garage sales scheduled.
Or you can just go to our REI stores page by state and find your store's garage sale dates.
