last year i went in there to buy a pair of 5tens. the only pair of low tops they had in my size had been worn, and not in the store, on the trails. the shoes were dirty, had cleat marks on the soles. guy asks me if id buy them for a discount, went next door to cove to pick them up brand new for cheaper than mecs used sale price.
Bike shop ftw, mec FTL
a couple weeks ago i needed to buy hiking boots, didnt want to support mec but deakin didnt have the size of boots i wanted while mec did. im still pissed that i bought those boots from them. the only service i got from them was the kid who went into the back to get me a few sizes to try on. so much for them being gear experts. oh yeah the boots were 25 bucks cheaper at deakin then at MEC, i asked the lady after they price matched if i got anymore money off since no one actually helped me.
gear experts my ass, they are the canadian tire of outdoor gear.
i should have just waited until i was in comox to go to valhalla
end rant on shitty customer service
