Terrible place to shop. The staff are rude and arrogant. Try to return a defective item and they treat you like you`re a diseased freak. The place is very disorganized but the worst part is the very poor service. How can they still be in business is beyond me.

My experience with Europe Bound.
Bottom line, go to MEC.
Selection seems outdated and store is jam packed with merchandise, which is okay but get the sense that they advertise a massive sale is ongoing but don't really mark things down, except the junk. Would go to MEC instead for the more pleasant shopping experience, even if there aren't that many deals.
This place is an unorganized pig sty. The staff are arrogant and seriously unknowledgable in:
They will most certainly go out of business soon. There's no way a business can withstand continuous bad reviews.
C@!p! A retailer that provides credit notes on heat transfer paper is seriously f@!%!*g with you.
By every rational measure, Europe Bound is one of the weakest of Toronto's Outdoor Enthusiast stores.

Great location to price compare with MEC, but the store is so poorly organized. I felt very overwhelmed and distracted looking for things.
Prices seemed to be about average for the offerings, but I doubt I'd go in here again. Small businesses really underestimate the customer's need for organization. I felt very uncomfortable amongst all the clutter.
