Fontana Pharmacy to open 35,000 square foot Kingston Flagship Store in 2019

Household name Fontana Pharmacy is set to open its 6th branch at the new Waterloo Square on the corner of Waterloo Road and West Kings House Road in the Summer of 2019. This flagship location will redefine the already high standard of quality and service set by Fontana as the brand continues to grow their footprint across Jamaica.

The company’s largest location to date, Fontana Waterloo Square will offer a truly unique shopping experience with a 35,000 square foot, two level space featuring elevators and escalators. This new branch will be a cutting edge expansion of the brand’s existing model: state of the art pharmacy, one-stop beauty hub, extensive baby and children’s selection, wide-ranging house and home décor collection, full business centre, photo lab, bill payment and courier services. It will naturally also offer the Fontana hallmarks of top class customer service, easy accessibility, and a relaxed and friendly shopping experience.

This new location is a major part of the Fontana Family’s 50th Anniversary plans - which not only include the growth of the Fontana brand, but also support for Jamaican brands and communities. Kevin Chang, Director at Fontana Pharmacy stated, “Fontana is proud to be celebrating 50 years of business in Jamaica. Our investment in Fontana Waterloo Square will help us to further solidify our position as Jamaica's Pharmacy and reinforce our commitment to Jamaica, our customers and our entire team.” The new location will showcase the best that Jamaica has to offer from beauty, health and skincare, to home decor.  Among the local brands currently available at Fontana are Ettenio, Herboo, Your True Shade, Kumeas, The Artsy Trail and Irie Rock.

In addition to stocking shelves with Jamaican brands, Fontana also provides jobs for Jamaicans, enriching the workforce and creating opportunities. The new branch will provide new jobs in areas such as business development , administration and marketing, and the investment in Fontana Waterloo Square is the company’s largest to date. Anne Chang, Kevin’s sister and Fontana director stated. “With exceptional customer service as our standard, we are excited to be employing 80 additional team members as we continue to play our part in enhancing the Jamaican workforce and exceeding our customer’s expectations.”

Fontana 50

For the past 50 years, the Fontana family has prided itself on providing impeccable customer service - which always starts with having what the customer wants and needs. This has allowed Fontana to establish itself as a true ‘one stop shop’, providing convenience coupled with the widest possible selection for customers of all ages and stages.

The new Waterloo Square location will build on this framework, with multiple ‘store within a store’ concepts to enhance the customer’s overall shopping experience. Among the highlights will be The Beauty Hub - a unique all-inclusive beauty experience, a kiddies’ corner, photo lab, business centre and other partners. “What makes Fontana unique, is that we go beyond functionality to bring our customers a true experience. Fontana is a culture in itself, based on energy, passion and friendly service” said director Raymond Therrien.

Fontana Pharmacy was first established in Mandeville in November 1968 by Bobby and Angela Chang and is now Jamaica’s leading pharmacy and department store chain with locations in Kingston, Mandeville, Montego Bay, Ocho Rios and Savannah La Mar. The growth of the brand speaks volumes for its values and mission in delivering the highest quality service to its valued customers island wide.
