Our Little Story
Like all good stories, ours begins once upon a time. 2011 to be exact – in Nigeria where our founder Unyime Samson, a stay-at-home mum herself spotted a gap in the market for quality, fashionable yet affordable kids wear. And as we all know, mums know best!. early days- marketing and selling from car booth!
This vision prompted our founder to pull little resource together and start selling from the boot of her car! Successful sales and the positive response from the teeming customers birthed our first brick and mortar store in 2012. The store was located in Kaduna State, and started operations September the same year.
Our first store !
Early 2014, we started experimenting with our online store www.bumblebees.com.ng, to test the viability of an online kidswear store in our clime. Sadly a sudden relocation in February 2015 led to the forced shut down of our thriving physical and online stores.
Being inundated by calls from customers reaching out and looking to keep buying more of our items, our founder in response to the market relaunched the online store re branded as www.beeswholesale.com. This store offers deep discounts on items BUT such discounts could only be achieved once a minimum order quantity was reached. Bumble bee store also offers customers who only want to buy single items the opportunity to do so on our www.bumblebees.com.ng website.
To increase its visibility, the store joined the Konga mall platform (http://www.konga.com/bumble-bees) and is also an accredited merchant on GTbanks SME Market hub (https://bumblebeeshq.smemarkethub.com/).
Because of its unique vision, bumble bees currently source for clothing and accessories from only brand name stores in the UK and in the US.
Our online store is a convenient shopping platform offering the flexibility of shopping a vast array of kids clothing an accessory from any where in the country in a safe and secured shopping environment.
