Popular Outdoor Brand Is Opening In Hudson’s Bay Stores Across Toronto

The Canadian department store has found another partner. The Vancouver company MEC, is headed inside of select Hudson’s Bay locations. 

MEC, which stands for Mountain Equipment Company, will be taking over the previous Forever 21 spots that were inside Hudson’s Bay stores, according to Retail Insider

The three MEC stores that are opening by the end of 2022 will be at the Hudson’s Bay locations in Yorkdale Shopping Centre, Square One, and the downtown Toronto flagship store on Yonge Street. Plus, with more to open next year. 

Not only will MEC have a larger physical presence, but the brand will also be available on The Bay’s site

Retail Insider states that “the partnership was struck after multiple conversations between MEC and Hudson’s Bay, recognizing the opportunity for two iconic Canadian brands to come together under one roof.”

If you’re not familiar with MEC, it offers a ton of outdoor gear and equipment from well-known brands like The North Face and Patagonia, as well as its own in-house label.
