Rove Boutique is a local shop here in WNY that carries an eclectic mix of jewelry, accessories, clothes, and gift items as well as a full line of local businesses from within WNY.
One of the owners, Jackie Lennert, originally started Rove Boutique as a popup vendor selling accessories and jewelry. Then in 2014-2015 she got the opportunity to undergo a rebranding of the business with her daughter Angela who was finishing her degree at Alfred University.
“My business was a year-long senior thesis project that officially launched Rove’s brick and mortar location in May 2015. Angela developed the branding and I developed the visual esthetic and product lines. Currently, Rove is always evolving to bring the best to our customers both in micro business product lines and personalized customer service.”
When Rove Boutique wanted to put their business in front of a new audience, they turned to Step Out Buffalo to help them achieve their goals. They purchased a Flex Package from our advertising options, which helped their social media grow by 52% over the duration of their year-long package.
