Canada’s leading outdoor retailer, Mountain Equipment Co-op (MEC) will open a new flagship store at East 2nd Avenue and Quebec Street in mid-2019 and will replace the current store on West Broadway.

Outdoor lovers must rejoice, as this high-quality company will bring the best of the products for beginners to expert level outdoor activities (and as we know, Olympic Village is a hot spot for outdoor entertainment and exercise!).


The new MEC store in Olympic Village is scheduled to open in 2019


It will measure 60,000 sq ft., with two levels of retail space, one floor with office and amenity space, three levels of underground parking, the multi-purpose room for fitness and yoga classes, and more than 50 bicycle parking stalls.

The new building in Olympic Village was designed by Proscenium Architecture + Interiors and will be constructed to a LEED Gold standard.
