REI Closes its Portland Location Due to Crime

Portland continues its decline. Residents complain – and continue to vote Democrat:


REI, the outdoor retailer beloved of well-quipped hikers, bikers, skiers and paddlers, sent a letter Monday to customers saying it will close its store at Northwest 14th Ave. and Johnson Street in early 2024.

“The safety of our employees, members and customers is always our number one priority. In recent years, Portland has been dealing with increased crime in our neighborhood and beyond.”

The Pearl District location was known for its rock-climbing wall, friendly staff, bike shop and lines around the block at sale time.

Management blamed the store’s “highest number of break-ins and thefts in two decades, despite actions to provide extra security.” In November 2022 thieves crashed a car though a glass door and made off with supplies, the third break-in in a week.

    To hell with demo. Including my own family. They can grovel on their knees like they did for BLM and maybe I’ll give them the time of day.
