Longer opening hours for holidays
published: Saturday | December 17, 2005

Joseph Cunningham, Gleaner Writer

SEVERAL BUSINESS places across the island will be opened for longer hours to accommodate Christmas shopping.

Jencare Skin Farm, located at 82 Hope Road in St Andrew, will be opened all night for your convenience, from 8:00 a.m. on Friday December 23 through to 6:00 p.m. the next day, says Nadeen Greaves, a supervisor at the facility.

She explained that, "Opening for extended hours is like an appreciation day and night for our customers." Furthermore, she said that Jencare has three new items in stock that will combat the winter climate.

These are the 'Youth Retention' ­ a facial soap, she says, that will maintain the PH balance in the face, resulting in beautiful skin tone. There is the 'facial energy' that "wakes up the face," as well as the 'Wrinkle Defence'.

Garth Moodie, managing director at York Pharmacy, located at 92 Half-Way Tree Road, says it will be opened on both public holidays, Christmas Eve and on Boxing Day to facilitate last minute shopping by their customers.

Remekie McIntosh, manager of Maxie Department store at 51 St. James Street in Montego Bay, says his company will also be opened for extra hours to facilitate shoppers. In addition, there will be a 10 per cent cash discount on all household items during the Christmas season, he said.

Meanwhile, Pash Fuller, acting director of field operations at the Consumer Affairs Commission advises buyers against spontaneous shopping habits "because we all have to face the New Year." He also appealed to sellers to abhor price gouging, emphasising that "they too need to be faithful to their customers."
