REI

Shopping

This massive flagship store is not only a shop but also a tourist attraction. Housed in the historic Tramway Building, the folks at REI coughed up over USD28 million to transform the old structure into an outdoor retail mecca. Besides the usual array of outdoor gear and clothing, it also offers a 45-foot climbing wall, mountain bike test trail, children's play area and a cold room to test winter parkas. It is the only store in the world where one can possibly leave with frostbite, rope burns and bike saddle sores.
