Company Description

MEC is a retail co-op that sells exclusively to members. Members get the best products at fair prices, access to rental gear, one of the best guarantees around, and 1% of every sale goes to support the outdoor community. A lifetime membership is $5, the same since 1971. We inspire and enable everyone to lead active outdoor lifestyles. We do that by selling outdoor gear, clothing and services. We match our members with gear that suits their needs. But we offer more than products, we offer passion. We love to share our expertise, experience, and enthusiasm. We started small: a few young climbers in the mountains who dreamed of gear that wouldn’t let them down at prices they could afford. We’ve grown from a few members to millions, and our interests have grown too. Now we climb, ski, hike, run, paddle and cycle. As we grew from a small business to a big one, we remained a different kind of business. We’re a member-owned co-operative, not focused on making big surpluses, just enough to sustain what we do.
