The store is now open. It’s a great time to tick items off your holiday list before the store gets discovered (and crowded).
This will be our sixth store in Ontario and with 500,000 MEC members living in the GTA, we expect it to be hopping. We’re adding a bike repair shop, a bike fitting station and a ski-tech shop to the space. And we’ve hired about 170 staff, people who are passionate about activities and keen to help you get set up with gear.
The store also gets a community room that local clubs and outdoor organizations can use for meetings even when the store’s not open.
Rental gear will be available from the North York store, but we’ll wait until after the busy holiday season to get the rental department up and running. Expect to have snowsports, camping gear and paddling stuff available for rent early in 2017.
Your local MEC store is more than just a place to get gear – it’s a hub for your outdoor community.
Join a meet-up group, sign up for a ride or race, and learn from experts at in-store clinics. Find MEC events near you to run, bike or gain new skills. Our events are low cost (or even free) with a fun vibe and friendly people.
