Hill Now: REI Store in NoMa Not a Done Deal, Company Says
The sporting goods store REI has not finalized its decision to open its first District store inside the redeveloped Uline Arena, a company representative said Friday.
The statement comes just days after a Douglas Development representative reportedly confirmed that the sporting goods store would open an outpost in NoMa, at 3rd and M streets NE.
“We love the D.C. area and we are delighted there’s excitement about talk that we’re looking at Uline. We have been talking with the developer, but need to clarify that we have not finalized the decision,” Senior Vice President of Retail Tim Spangler said by email.
