Outdoor enthusiasts in the suburbs won’t have to travel to the downtown core to shop at MEC anymore, as the city’s second location opened in North York Saturday, Nov. 26.

The 34,000 square foot, two-storey Mountain Equipment Co-op store with a sawtooth roof, wood-infused interior, and underground parking opened at 784 Sheppard Ave. East, west of Leslie Street and metres away from Bessarion subway station.

The store, aimed at customers throughout the Greater Toronto Area, specifically north of Eglinton Avenue and east to Oshawa, will offer a full service bike repair shop and ski-tech shop, a bike fitting station, and a rental equipment program, which will launch in 2017. Two community rooms for outdoor clubs and environmental organizations will be available free of charge.

Programming will include weekly running and riding meetups, along with ‘how to’ sessions to help members take up new activities like backpacking, cycling, and snow sports.

“MEC is a hub,” said spokesperson Andrew Sutherland during the store’s media preview Thursday, Nov. 24. “It’s not just a store, it’s a community meeting place.”

Planning is underway to relocate MEC’s downtown Toronto flagship in 2018 from 400 King St. West to about 500 metres north to Queen and Peter streets.
