VANCOUVER, June 24, 2013 /CNW/ - Mountain Equipment Co-op (MEC) will provide free shipping to its 600,000 Alberta members for two weeks to help them access clothing, gear and emergency supplies that may be needed due to the extensive flooding in the province.

- MEC's free shipping offer is available June 24 - July 8, for orders placed on www.mec.ca or over the phone (1-888-847-0770)
- All MEC members who live within Alberta are eligible to receive free shipping
