Your local MEC store is more than just a place to get gear – it’s a hub for your outdoor community.
Kitchener will be our seventh store in Ontario. With 30,000 members nearby, we expect it to be hopping.
We’re adding a bike repair shop and a ski-tech shop. And we’ve hired 100+ new staff, people who are passionate about activities, and keen to help you find your gear.
Rental gear will be available soon, once the store is up and running smoothly. Expect to have camping gear and paddling stuff available later in 2017.
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.
