Recreational Equipment, Inc. (REI) decided on Bedford County, PA in the I-99 Corridor to locate its only East Coast distribution facility. The 525,000 sq/ft distribution center is situated on 43 acres and is a LEED Silver Certification facility. Forty-two of REI's 96 stores are serviced from here along with 50 percent of the co-op's direct-to-customer business, and approximately 1.2 million active co-op members that reside east of the Mississippi. The ease of travel utilizing I-99, the PA Turnpike and all connecting highways was a major deciding factor along with the affordable land, utilities and access to quality labor.
