3) Tribal Dance

Yes. You read that right. We also have dancers performing live tribal dance every hour for 10 to 15 minutes to keep you entertained.

The Bombay Store has always played a crucial role for NGOs by providing them with a platform and making them self-sustainable. Be it by developing, sourcing and retailing merchandise for Magic Bus to support their cause of harnessing the power of sports to develop the lives of children from marginalised communities in India; by opening our doors and wholeheartedly welcoming the ‘products’ made by the kids of Akanksha Foundation; by supporting Project Crayons in raising funds for the marginalized communities or by joining hands with Elephant Parade for the cause of Asian Elephant Conservation. We have always effectively pertained to our Corporate Social Responsibility.

So come & Join us in supporting this movement for Empowerment of Women.

Venue: The Bombay Store, PM Road, Mumbai
Display Date: 14th to 20th September
