Find Great Deals at REI Asheville’s Garage Sale

From the quiet whispers of an oar carving out a ripple in the surface of a lake to the thunderous sounds of wind whipping by as a skier flies downhill, outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy residence in Western North Carolina are busy daydreaming about the many adventures that await them with the coming of a new season. Fortunately, experts at Biltmore Park Town Square's REI are just as busy making sure that they are prepared to outfit the athletes, and the store's Garage Sale this weekend is the best place for them to start.

REI Asheville's Garage Sale will feature gently used and returned clothing, gear, and accessories at discount prices ranging from 40-60% off. The sale will last from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, September 19th. In order to make purchases, you must be a member. As the largest consumer cooperative in the nation, REI offers plenty of membership perks, including access to their popular garage sales, membership dividends, discounts on shop services, savings on adventure travel, and more. Buy a lifetime membership for just $20.

REI Asheville's location in Biltmore Park Town Square is another great reason to become a member. During your many return shopping trips to the outdoor outfitters, you'll also enjoy the opportunity to walk to a variety of other stores, restaurants, and entertainment venues. During the colder months, adventurers may prefer to continue their exercise indoors at the Reuter Family YMCA, which is next door to REI. Or, they may want to grab a healthy meal from 131 MAIN Restaurant, Roux, or Travinia Italian Kitchen. The Hilton Asheville, too, is a great stop for visiting hikers, kayakers, and more. So before you hit the trails, stop by Biltmore Park and make sure you have the best gear for a new season of sports.
