National co-op MEC continues to earn the love with their large, eco-friendly stores, knowledgeable staff and reasonably priced selection of outdoor goods. Did you know they’ve been in operation since 1971, making the store 40 years old this year? Congratulations to MEC. You may want to congratulate them yourself by dropping by to pick up one of those awesome ninja bootie-like Vibram FiveFingers shoes.
