Having no Mcdonalds in your country would be a victory for some, and detrimental for others. See what this man did the day before the last Mcdonalds in his country shut down.
The last Mcdonalds shut down in Iceland in October of 2009. Fast food fan, Hjortur Smarason purchased his last meal from that Mcdonalds, just a burger and some fries because he wanted to mark the occasion for posterity. Smarason donated his meal to the National Museum of Iceland, where it was stored for three years until they started receiving complaints.
After spending over a year in Iceland’s National Museum, the last McDonalds meal sold in the country will now be going on display at the Bus Hostel in Reykjavik. The world-famous fast food chain shut down its Iceland locations in 2009,and even after all this time the last meal sold in the country has still not become rotten or moldy.
After the economic collapse, McDonalds failed to keep customers coming back in Iceland, and the company was forced to close their doors in the country. The final day that McDonalds was open in Iceland was October 31, 2009, and on that day a man named Hjortur Smarason purchased a meal as a souvenir. Smarason had no intention on actually eating it but wanted to hang onto it out of curiosity, and because he saw it as a piece of history.
The day before the country’s last McDonald’s closed its doors, October 30th 2009, Hjörtur Smárason went to to buy one last burger. This burger wasn’t to eat. It was to keep on a garage shelf. Three years later, he opened the wrapped burger expecting it would be rotten. Instead, it looked exactly like it had the day he bought it.
Smárason was so impressed, he donated the burger to Iceland’s National Museum where it was tucked away for a year.
