Garments Section Launch at CCTCF

Organize your wardrobe according to the kinds of occasions you attend and you will be spending less time choosing what to wear.

Garments Section Opening at CCTCF...

Since the birth of the CCTCF flagship shop at Emana Bonne Fontaine in Yaounde, Cameroon, most customers have identified the shop with two main lines of products: Jewelry and handbags for ladies. That judgement was to a large extent true. The shop until now has been focusing on all kinds of handbags, purses and jewelry sets for ladies.


With the growing popularity of the shop, loyal customers have become more and more demanding. Many of them want CCTCF to offer a one-stop-shopping experience. To save time, efforts and risks involved in shopping from one area to another, they want to be able to find most of their needs on one spot - CCTCF.


This is a big ask for the shop's management to even consider as it involves bigger investments in the setting up of new departments and the logistics involved are very challenging. To not completely ignore this request, the CCTCF management has started expanding with the addition of new shopping sections. The first was the shoe section, perfume and now the garments section.


The new garments section features clothing for adult ladies and gentlemen in different designs, colors, brands and sizes. From casual outfits like jeans shorts, ripped jeans to formal gowns for special occasions, we have them all. You only have to request our catalogue via our contact page to get the full list.

Sources close to the management have revealed that very popular clothing brands will be featuring soon but they declined naming specific examples.

All in all, the Christmas shopping season coming up soon this year is bound to be spectacular.

Can't wait?

Neither can I...!
