We showed up at rei tualatin at 9 am sharp to find NO SALE! Was the date wring?!
We called REI and they confirmed that the used gear sale was on Saturday, April 21st. We had it listed as Sunday, April 22nd, as per the REI web site. It is tough to check past events on REI’s web site because they are no longer listed. It could be an honest mistake by REI, or an honest mistake by us … another listing online showed the correct 4/21 date so we could have listed it incorrectly. At any rate, we are terribly sorry that you found no sale this morning! Thanks very much for pointing it out and again we are sorry. – POTC
