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.
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.
