Mountain Equipment Co-Op has taken the wrap off their new flagship store located at 300 Queen Street West and the grand opening is this weekend (April 13th & 14th, 2019).

The stunning 54,000-square-foot store will serve over 490,000 Co-op members in the Greater Toronto Area(GTA) alone. In addition to a better layout and inspiring store experiences, the new flagship will serve as a community hub, offering clinics, events, member services and spaces for local outdoor groups and organizations to reserve and use.

Notable features of MEC's new Toronto flagship include:

  • "Basecamp" open-concept community space: used to host how-to clinics, community events and to connect members with places to camp, hike and get active outside in Ontario.

  • Bouldering wall: a 1,000-square-foot wall for in-store climbing

  • Full-service bike repair and ski shop: a new open-concept design offering a welcoming space for MEC specialist staff to help members gear up for biking and skiing adventures
