Can anyone explain to me why anyone would even care about about REI?  Its a friggin sports/outdoor store and we have a dozen of them already and I had never even heard of it before this controversy with the park.

REI is for the people who backpack, hike and camp in the Grand Canyon/Moab/Yosemite/California Sierras/ and the Rockies. Think of it this way, Bass Pro/Cabella's/Gander Mountain/Dick's is = Barnes & Noble, REI = Decopolis.

I have a feeling you would care a lot more about it if Tulsa was getting one Grin, but itís a great and unique sporting goods store that focuses on hiking, backpacking, biking, climbing and river sports. Tulsa may have smaller stores that fit that niche now (as does OKC), but nothing remotely close to REI. It would be a great fit for Tulsa which is why I think it will get one eventually.

No, really I could care less lol. Like I have said, I have never been to one, and never heard of it before all the controversy.  Never looked at their stuff online before either but I don't hike, bike or backpack. Heard there are bugs and things out there in "nature" so I will just stay here in the city where things can be properly organized, sprayed, pruned and well kept.  Wink

Tulsa will be getting a REI.

This is was just a message from our developer overlords via a pouting Tulsa World story to never again go against their plans. Or else. "The unwashed masses messed it all up!"
