Unit leaders – we have some good news and some bad news. We’ve heard this information on several online Scouting groups, so wanted to share with our District M folks.
BSA’s national supply division is raising prices for some awards and uniform pieces.
The prices don’t go into effect until March 8. So, you can plan ahead and buy from our Scout Shops at the current, lower prices for roughly the next two weeks!
See details below.
