With Christmas now just around the corner, many Jamaicans are getting into the spirit of the season. The idea of preparing for the festive season can be a bit daunting, with all the decorating and shopping that is usually done leading up to the big day.

Well, there is no need to worry. Fontana Pharmacy is here to help make this Christmas special, with less of the hassle that normally comes with the Yuletide Season.

Marketing administrator at Fontana Pharmacy, Gillian Parague, said the company is the one-stop shop for all things Christmas.

"Fontana has the Christmas magic for 2017! We have literally everything you need for the season," she said.

"We have in stock Christmas trees, a variety of unique decorations, gift baskets, postcards, and even Christmas stockings," Parague added.

The Christmas trees come in several shapes and sizes and are available in green or white.

"We have Christmas decorations ranging from as low as $299 for various styles of ornament sets. Christmas trees start as low as $6,999 plus tax," Parague said.

One of the services offered during the Christmas season is decorating, where customers can purchase a tree, and at an additional cost, have a representative from Fontana visit their home to decorate the tree.




Christmas is a season of giving gifts to family and friends. This task is made easy with the many options of gift sets available at Fontana.

"For our shoppers who are on the go, we have pre-wrapped gift baskets available for both males and females," Parague said.

Office parties, nights out on the town, and dinners are all part of the festive season, and everyone wants to look their best while attending these events. Yes, you guessed it, Fontana can help you turn heads when you walk into any room.

Fontana recently introduced its cosmetics department, where shoppers can get their make-up done. "We currently have on offer a walk-in service, where customers can come in store and get their make-up done by professional beauty technicians at reasonable prices," Parague said

Customers can also get assistance from beauty technicians when purchasing cosmetics. They also offer shade testing and matching.

In every Fontana store, shoppers can find 'Funtana'! Toys, toys, toys! This department is a fun-filled wonderland of toys for children of all ages.

"We have everything in stock from bicycles to dolls, which are most popular around Christmas time," Parague said.

Fontana wants to make this Christmas special for all its customers and as such, has made available a few treats for its shoppers.

This Friday, all Fontana stores will be having sales as part of the Black Friday event. Discounts will be available to both in-store and online shoppers.

"We have up to 50 per cent off on selected items and 25 per cent off on toys and decors."
