MEDFORD, Ore. — Friday is the grand opening of the REI store in Medford’s Northgate Center. As of 10 a.m., merchandise will be on sale to the public, and celebrations will be underway.

In addition to offering outdoor supplies to the Rogue Valley, the store has also brought in 59 new jobs, 45 of which were given to local residents. Those employees have been hard at work for weeks to get ready for customers.

The community is invited to join in the grand opening festivities. Grand opening celebrations began at 10 a.m. and continue until Sunday evening.
