Outdoors enthusiasts, we’ve got good news. You can stock up on gear at three new Mountain Equipment Company (MEC) stores in Toronto and the GTA and here’s where you’ll find them.

The new stores, called “premier shop-in-shops,” are actually located within existing Hudson’s Bay stores in and around the city.

Each Hudson’s Bay MEC store is 7,000 to 11,000 square feet in size and has almost every element of a standalone MEC store, except for bike and ski service stations and some larger items.
