“There’s not many places that someone would suggest that you bring something in to be repaired rather than buy something new,” says manager Kent Walsh. MEC’s approach, he says, comes “from a place of purpose around enabling and inspiring active outdoor lifestyle. We really live it in a way that filters through.” Inside, MEC offers workshops to inspire people to take up new hobbies. Outside, MEC partners with municipalities to build MEC-friendly infrastructure like the biker-run trail network near Governor’s Brook in Spryfield.
