McDonald's recently created an e-commerce store named Golden Arches Unlimited, which will sell various branded merchandise that will be exclusive to the platform. Some of the items available on Golden Arches Unlimited include T-shirts, hair ties, pop sockets, and McDonald's clothing. The e-commerce platform will also be updated periodically with seasonal items, some of the holiday-themed items include Happy Meal Christmas decorations and winter hats.
The launch of the e-commerce platform marks the company's venture towards becoming more of a lifestyle brand. Additionally, the platform allows consumers to interact with the company away from the fast food experience. Other fast food chains have also launched similar e-commerce sites in the past.
Colin Mitchell, the SVP of global marketing for McDonald's, spoke about the online store, "McDonald's has been ingrained in the fabric of culture for years, and there's a long history of fans wearing our brand with pride."
