Questions about MEC

1. Can you open an MEC store in my town?

MEC’s goal is to help all Canadians lead more active outdoor lifestyles, and we want members across Canada to be able to access our great gear and events. We’re constantly growing and expanding to new locations, using extensive demographic research to plan our next move. In the meantime, you can always find us online at

2. Do you have any MEC stores in the USA?

We do not currently have any MEC locations outside of Canada, but members are welcome to use from virtually anywhere in the world.

3. How can I get a copy of the catalogue?

MEC discontinued our catalogues in 2011. This change helped us reduce our environmental footprint, and we’ve expanded our website to include all of this information and more.

4. Why don’t you stock all items in every store?

Our store space is limited, so we sometimes have to make the difficult decision not to carry certain items in a particular store. If you come to an MEC store and don’t find what you’re looking for, ask a staffer. We’ll help you order what you’re looking for as quickly as possible.
