← Thread:Talk:Worker-Owned Cooperatives/REI/reply
Is REI a worker-owned cooperative? Isn't it a consumer oriented cooperative? If you could research this, Michael, that would be helpful. Thanks!
Is there a difference? REI just seems a lot bigger. That is my assumption.
Maybe REI is consumer owned.
I don't know. It would be helpful if you would research this, if you could, too! (:
Both worker-owned and consumer cooperatives fall under the general "cooperative" category, but there clearly are differences between each. I've done some research on worker-owned cooperatives in Portland, and REI hasn't popped up. Maybe you could specifically look into the company and find out.

Good work, Kotra!
Michael, ironically I also discovered that REI is a consumer co-op earlier today (and not a worker-owned cooperative) by going into the REI store in the Pearl District and talking with one of the employees there, who also confirmed it by consulting with one of the store managers.
