FROM YOUR SAM HOUSTON AREA COUNCIL SCOUT SHOPS:
"Please pass on to your districts that the Scout Shops are ready for the new kids and their families as they will need uniforms. Our main store will have extended hours in September. We will be open 9AM – 6PM to help those families. Also the Main store will have some shirts with patches pre-sewn on the uniform. Also on September 6th and 13th we will have our seamstress here to sew on patches for new scouts and leaders only.
Each scout shop is having a fall promotion. This promotion is to help promote each scout and leader wearing a Full Uniform. Each new Scout or Leader that purchases a full uniform (shirt, pants, belt, cap, neckerchief &slide, patches, & socks) will receive a coupon for $10 off their next purchase of $50 or more. Exclusions apply."
