REI Opens at Midtown Tampa

The fifth Florida location for the outdoor retailer opened at Midtown Tampa last month. At 23,000 square feet it's the first retail store to open in the highly anticipated new development on the corner of I-275 & Dale Mabry Hwy. In lieu of a grand opening celebration, REI plans to invest a total of $10,000 in two local outdoor nonprofits, Friends of Alafia and Florida State Parks in support of Hillsborough River State Park.
