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:

deWitt - Shoppingtown Mall (in former site of rival Dicks, Bon-Ton, JCPenney or Macys)
Syracuse - Destiny USA (in soon to be former Sports Authority or now empty Bon-Ton or Ballys 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 or (Northern Lights) former TJ Maxx, Michaels or Media Play
New Hartford - Sangertown Square (ex-Sears) or across the road at old Price Chopper even
Rotterdam - Rotterdam Square Mall (old Macys)
Irondequoit - Medley Centre (not wholly familiar with Rochester regional retail although a location in Monroe County has been confirmed for CityGate)
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)
TBD - Other closing Sport Authority stores where 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:

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
