McDonald's Canada has teamed up with Peace Collective to launch a limited-edition food-based nostalgic clothing line.
With McHappy Day on May 11, the fast food giant is targeting Millennial consumers by spotlighting iconic characters they grew up with. The collection features all of your favorite childhood McDonald's characters like Grimace and The Hamburglar, along with McDonald's corporate colors on jackets, sweatshirts, joggers, t-shirts, tote bags, toques, keychains, and lapel pins that evoke nostalgia.
McDonald's has also announced that a portion of the proceeds from sales of the merch collection will go towards the Ronald McDonald House Charities Canada to help families live together with their sick children in a hospital in Canada. The collection's stock will be limited and will be available for purchase until May 11, 2022.
