MONTRÉAL, Jan. 18, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - The Society for Montréal's 375th anniversary is excited to announce the names of the three suppliers that have developed the official collection for the celebrations. RUDSAK, W Communication and Créations Manitou, three Québec companies, will offer everyone who loves Montréal a wide range of products designed exclusively for the celebrations. Many products in the collection will be available online http://www.375mtl.com/en/store/ as of today and in the suppliers' retail outlets.
The creative, designer and entirely local products were made with all types of budgets in mind. A number of other products will be added to those already offered at the unveiling of the spring/summer 2017 Collection. The Official Collection is an excellent way for people to show off their pride in and attachment to the city during Montréal's 375th anniversary celebrations.
The Collection showcases an array of products, particularly clothing bearing the celebration logo, a wide range of accessories and warmer clothing for outside. People of all ages can purchase mittens, toques and scarves adorned with the celebration logo to beat the winter chill.
The executive team at the Society for Montréal's 375th Anniversary, a non-profit organization, selected these three Québec companies as official suppliers of the Official Collection following a call for tenders.
