Outdoor recreation and sporting goods retailer REI is expanding its Fort Collins store into the space occupied by Aaron Brothers Art and Framing, which will be closing.

REI submitted a building permit application to the city of Fort Collins for a $1.38 million project that will add over 30,000 square feet to its current 50,000 square feet space for restrooms, storage, additional cashiers, and fitting rooms, the Coloradoan reports.
