Fontana Pharmacy celebrates 50 with yearlong activity schedule

As Fontana Pharmacy nears its 50th anniversary in November, it has planned tons of activities for the year.

This month, Fontana will be focusing on a number of activities around health and fitness as well as the launch of Fontana 50th Face Off.

"Fontana not only seeks to serve its customers but engage our employees who we consider one of our biggest assets," the pharmacy chain said in a release.

"One of our most exciting activations under way right now is our Fontana 50th Face Off. This is an exciting inter-store competition that will challenge all five branches in an eight-round contest to accumulate points and become 'The Face-off champion'."

The release continued: "Our staff members are excited and committed to the challenge. Even though it is competition for staff, not only the staff benefits. Customers are able to win prizes as there is one specific round around our loyal customers. The competition will foster teamwork and employee morale. The primary aim of this campaign is to bring awareness of Fontana's 50th anniversary and encompass all elements of Fontana, and also engage our beloved employees and customers."

Fontana Pharmacy also hosted a number of activities to celebrate World Health Day last Saturday, and is celebrating Physical Activity Week, which ends this Friday, at all its five branches.

GETTING EVERYONE INVOLVED

The aim is to engage customers, suppliers and the surrounding communities in activities based on the theme 'Fit for 50'.

All these activities are free of cost to customers.

"One element would be 'Talk with the Doctor', where Fontana is partnering with student doctors and general practitioners to give limited medical services to customers, such as free blood-pressure and blood-sugar testing and discounted over-the-counter products and prescriptions," the release stated.

"Fontana will also be going into the schools and doing a physical education (PE) takeover element, where we'll chip in and host PE classes for all our five locations."

The pharmacy chain concluded in the release: "Fontana's overall theme for the year is celebrating 50 years of taking care of Jamaica in as many ways as we can, and you'll see that in the upcoming months with our other activities."
