Attention campers, rock climbers and other adventurous people: your favourite outdoor gear store just opened three brand new stores in Toronto.
That’s right, Mountain Equipment Company (MEC) has partnered with Hudson’s Bay to open three new locations, or what they’re calling “premier shop-in shops.”
Yorkdale Mall, Square One Shopping Centre in Mississauga and the flagship store on Queen Street, will now sell MEC’s signature goods like sleeping bags, tents, rock climbing gear and basically everything else you need to survive in the great outdoors.
From 7,000 to 11,000 square feet spaces, these shops will operate like standalone MEC stores besides their bike and ski service stations and wont’ sell large times like canoes, paddles and other oversized things.
On top of these new additions, more than 400 MEC label styles will now be available to purchase on TheBay.com.
Of course, these are in addition to MEC’s already established storefronts including the one on 300 Queen Street West. This location sells the bulkier items not available at Bay stores, so head over there to try out their rock climbing walls or buy a kayak.
