DEARBORN - Father’s Day is June 19, and if you’re still trying to find the perfect gift for Dad check out some of the unique ideas put together by the Ford Global Brand Licensing team.
All of the Ford licensed merchandise can be ordered online – we’re giving you the links – and there will be opportunities to buy items at special locations, receive great discounts and in some cases help support a deserving charity.
If you’d like to do some online browsing on your own, visit the Ford Marketplace at www.store.ford.com. The Ford Marketplace represents nine global e-tail outlets offering everything from a Ford computer mouse to a Mustang pool table. The newly revamped site has been specifically designed to showcase a wealth of global product offerings, while also highlighting special promotions and discounts.
“We work with many companies, and they design wonderful products for us,” said John Nens, manager, Ford Global Brand Licensing & Corporate Identity. “We thought the Ford Marketplace would be the best way to showcase all the diverse merchandise we have available from these authorized sources."
If you’re out and about during Father’s Day weekend, official Ford Merchandise Trailers will be on site at the NASCAR race at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Mich., and at the Mid-America Ford Nationals in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
