REI Co-Op Partners with Al. Neyer to Develop, Design, & Build State-of-the-Art Distribution Center

National specialty outdoor retailer REI Co-op selected Lebanon, Tennessee, as the location of its fourth distribution center to support its continued growth on the East Coast, and in the Midwest and South. The building and its operations will proactively address the employee experience, community engagement, and environmental impact.

REI’s Lebanon distribution center includes a 400,000 SF facility that employs more than 280 staff. Situated on 41 acres in Wilson County, the facility will be one mile from I-40 and three miles from downtown Lebanon at 1400 Murfreesboro Road. The location will considerably reduce shipping times to fulfill customers’ online purchases and be able to support more than 70 REI stores. Nearly 5.6 million REI members live in the service area of the new distribution center.

Al. Neyer supported REI in its site selection and land purchase; engaged with Lebanon’s elected officials and economic development council, and facilitated introductions with regional power suppliers. Working closely with REI, our integrated team has positioned this development to reflect the co-op’s values by putting people first and applying a new standard in fighting the climate crisis.

Our team looks forward to helping REI set an important precedent for sustainability in Greater Nashville and beyond with this leading facility that will not only be a great place to work and a great addition to the community but will also make a lasting positive impact on the environment.
