Scout Shop Inventory in Open Discussion - Program Posted February 27, 2006 Is it just our Scout Shop or is it a nationwide problem that the shop never has enough inventory to support our council? Case in point..... For the past two years the Scout Shop has not had enough Rank awards for our Blue and Gold. Most units in this area do their Rank awards at B&G. How difficult is it for them to order and appropriate amount of patches at each level? In September people went looking for uniforms...guess what? No uniforms..all sold out. In the late spring I saw people looking to buy shorts for camp...guess what? No shorts. Our shop is a National Supply Division store, not a council owned store. What's going on here?
