What:  REI Distribution Center Tour

Event Details:  REI is a national outdoor retail co-op that has its beginnings in Seattle with a group of mountaineers in the late 1930’s. Today, they offer their own line of high-quality award-winning gear and apparel, in addition to products from the top brands for camping, climbing, cycling, fitness, hiking, paddling, snow sports and travel.

Join us for a tour of REI’s Distribution Center in Sumner to see how they get all that gear, apparel, and equipment efficiently to their customers’ doors.  This will be a great opportunity to both learn and provide feedback on ergonomics and human factors for the warehouse receiving, order picking, and shipping processes.  The tour will last about 1 ½ hours followed by a ½ hour discussion.

Cost:  There is no cost to attend
