Best Sporting Goods Store 

Mountain Equipment Co-op

One of the things that makes MEC such a cool place is its commitment to the environment. On staff is Christine Krochak, a sustainability coordinator/administration assistant. “I deal with anything that has to do with getting people outdoors,” she says, which includes partnerships with local organizations and activities for “self-propelled wilderness adventures.” The MEC location on Granville can proudly boast a 98 percent diversion rate for waste, 100 percent bio oil (from Wilsons Fuel) for heating, and reducing energy use in the store 37 percent this year. They also sell good quality sporting goods at reasonable prices. Duh. 1550 Granville, 421-2667
