Kids & Moms…the magic of mother care
Are you expecting a visit from Mr. Stork soon? Does the thought of embarking on a shopping spree (or safari, rather) for baby clothes, food, and assorted new-baby paraphernalia give you morning sickness at all times of the day, even if you're the dad? Well, all your worst worries are about to end.
at House 46 Road 11 Block C, Banani is a store called Kids & Moms,
that, as its name suggests, is devoted to mothers and their children.
From diapers to stretch creams, everything a woman needs for herself
and her babies, you'll find it here, all under one roof.
K&M stresses on quality control. They get their products straight from the distributors to avoid fakes and counterfeits, and also offer a selection of special mother care products that are unavailable anywhere else in the country. However, what makes this outfit truly unique is the presence of trained staff who can guide first-time parents on the proper use of the products, and they often offer handy tips on childcare. How's that for service?
In the near future, K&M plans to extend its range of products to include a fun-zone and to offer play equipment like slides and swing sets. Here's wishing them the very best.
If you want to get the best buys for your baby, make Kids & Moms your destination, and you won't have to go anywhere else.
