NEW YORK CITY-New Yorkers who lean toward the great outdoors will have a new option for equipment and apparel as national sporting goods retailer REI opens its first store in the city. The 39,000-square-foot space at the landmarked Puck Building, owned by the Kushner Cos., is slated for a fall 2011 opening. It will also be REI’s first store in New York State since a New Rochelle location closed in 2000 as well as its third in the metro area; the nearest current site is some 25 miles west of the city in East Hanover, NJ, with a Norwalk, CT store scheduled to open next month.

The three-level store includes 14,000 square feet of ground-floor space and 25,000 square feet of below-grade space in the 125-year-old mixed-use property at 295 Lafayette St. in Manhattan’s Soho neighborhood. Along with gear and apparel for activities ranging from camping to snow sports, it will also house bicycle services on two levels, including a quick-repair concierge and a full-service shop.
