Cutting ties to REI
Letter to the editor from Martin Paup / Seattle
My wife and I read the Aug. 13 editorial regarding the REI/North Face contretemps and were quite upset.
We have been REI members for many decades but because of their described refusals to terminate their purchases of North Face, allegedly almost slave-labor goods, [we] terminated our REI memberships.
For other REI members who are of like mind and wish to terminate their memberships, it is quite easy: merely call 1.800.426.4840 and await a representative.
They understood and were very cooperative and friendly.
