The MEC Logo shines brightly on a cold blustery evening at 784 Sheppard Avenue East, just a few minutes drive from the intersection of Hwy 401 and 404. The two-storey 34,000 square foot building was strategically located in Bayview Village to become a hub for the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) that won’t trek downtown Toronto to the flagship King Street location (which will be moving to Queen Street West in 2018).
The new renewable energy powered building has two levels of underground parking, plenty of bicycle parking stalls, full service ski and bicycle shops, but what will strike you the most is the wood-infused interiors and large windows which let natural light pour into the store.
This calendar is going to fill up fast starting in 2017, and to top it off the North York location offers a meeting space that local clubs can use free of charge. Seasonal events such as MEC Snowfest, Paddlefest and Bikefest will be jointly supported through the Co-op’s North York and King Street locations.
Be sure to drop by the new spacious North York store and check out both levels of gear and clothing!
