In addition to keeping you looking good and playing comfortably, McCoo’s has a lengthy history in Whistler. It all started in the 80’s when Jeff Coombs and George McConkey had a vision. Turning that vision into reality wasn’t all rainbows and butterflies and having to sleep in their new store to guard their product because their doors hadn’t been installed yet, was among the hiccups. Nonetheless, the McCoo’s was off to a start!
In the 90’s, this locally owned shop benefited from the big mountain boom that Whistler Blackcomb found itself involved in. As Whistler experienced it’s first No.1 ski resort title and simultaneously No.1 titles after that, McCoo’s was right there alongside them, establishing a name among the local community. Those early days saw many brands getting their first major exposure in McCoo’s and the growth of Whistler helped pave the way for the opening of McCoo’s Too.
The most recent chapter has seen McCoo’s change ownership but as if fate would have it, the company moved into the hands of another local Whistler family. They still continue to uphold the core culture, service, and product selection that has always been an integral part of the McCoo’s brand and it’s role in the community.
McCoo’s is not just a place to stop for retail needs, there local intel of Whistler Blackcomb may have you lingering in store to find out the scoop on where to ski and the most sought after powder stashes.
