2019 marks the fifth year that REI, one of the High Line’s longest partners, will close all of its locations on Black Friday, choosing instead to #OptOutside. Started by REI, the #OptOutside campaign encourages everyone to spend the day outdoors with family and friends.
REI believes in the importance of connecting with and caring for nature. This year, REI is going even further with their #OptOutside campaign, pledging to reduce their environmental impact and encouraging others to do the same. That’s why REI is hosting 80+ cleanup events in November and giving their 13,000+ employees the day off on Black Friday to spend time outdoors making a difference. We are excited to #OptOutside with REI and we hope you will too by joining us on the High Line.
