With a whopping span of 15,000 sq ft, BOVE aims to be delivered as a one-stop creative retail experience to online-savvy consumers and walk-in customers to first-hand receive engaging experience by curating together parenting products, activities, services and essential knowledge according to the consumer’s lifecycle needs throughout and after pregnancy.
