REI - Carolina Place Mall - Pineville, NC
Pineville, NC location.

REI made headlines by staying closed on Black Friday which is how I heard of them as they have yet to grace these (lake) shores being only downstate in NY right now:

Camillus - former Bon-Ton
deWitt - Shoppingtown Mall (in former site of rival Dicks, Bon-Ton, JCPenney or Macys) or former Michaels on NY 5
Syracuse - Destiny USA (in former Bon-Ton although the Broome County chain are already there)
Cicero - former Burlington at Drivers Village
Clifton Park - outgoing OfficeMax
Auburn - Genesee St (former P&C about a mile from another competitor Bass Pro Shops)
Clay - Great Northern Mall (where Bon-Ton already left or where Macys are about to leave)
Liverpool - former Price Chopper or Wegmans
North Syracuse - (W Taft Road) former Chase-Pitkin after October or (Northern Lights) former TJ Maxx, Michaels or Media Play
New Hartford - Sangertown Square (ex-Sears) or across the road at old Price Chopper (NY 5A)
Rotterdam - Rotterdam Square Mall (old Macys)
Irondequoit - Skyview on the Ridge [Medley Centre] (not wholly familiar with Rochester regional retail, although a location in Monroe County has been confirmed for CityGate on NY 15 in Brighton)
Williamsville - Eastern Hills Mall (former Dave and Busters or other Buffalo area vacancy)
Camillus - Camillus Plaza (just in case Bon-Ton winds up leaving there too)
Oswego - NY 104 (TBD)
Fulton - River Glen Plaza (former kmart)
Cortland - Riverside Mall (if I choose somewhere else for Planet Fitness) or Cortlandville
Latham - Latham Circle Mall (freestanding)
Fayetteville - former Eastern Mountain Sports
TBD - anywhere else that Gander Mountain are closing just as long as REI aren't already in town

von Maur

Von Maur
Fishers, Victor, NY location outside Rochester, the closest one to Syracuse right now.
I go by the von Maur that you see when I go to Rochester so here's where they could open:

Camillus - former Bon-Ton
Syracuse - Destiny USA, departing Bon Ton (Ontario County von Maur shown here was one) or JCPenney if they wind up leaving themselves
New Hartford - Sangertown Square, former Circuit City
Cicero - former Burlington at Drivers Village
Latham - Latham Circle Mall; would have to be freestanding
DeWitt - Shoppingtown Mall; former Macys, JCPenney or Dicks
Clay - Great Northern Mall, also former Bon Ton or Macys
