First look: REI at Pike & Rose (Photos)
Outside, there is a large public art mural with a rock-climbing theme. There is a large tree holding up one corner of the building, and a seating area with benches. The store has among the most unique door handles you've ever seen in a retail setting. REI will have its own surface parking lot, in keeping with its more traditional Rockville Pike retail character. Spaces are for REI customers only, and there is a 2-hour time limit. REI opens on April 25.
