SCOUT SHOP POLICIES
– All special orders will be paid for in
full prior to the order being sent to National. There will be NO
REFUNDS/EXCHANGES for this merchandise. You will have 30 days to
pick up the merchandise from the time you are called before the
merchandise will be put in our inventory.
Holding Merchandise –
is normal store items will only be put aside for one (1) business
Purchasing Advancement Items –
items will not be sold unless the proper paperwork is turned in at
the time of purchase. This includes the advancement report with the
blue cards attached.
- Items that are charged to the council
account must have enough funds to cover the merchandise, otherwise,
the items must be paid for. You will not be allowed to go under a
zero balance. Each unit that maintains this account should supply
the Scout Store with an updated list of who is allowed to charge
against this account.
Unit Accounts - A unit can not come in the council service
center and just say charge my account if there is no money in the
account. The Housatonic Council is not a bank and can not lend money
to units to pay for badges, books, etc. It is suggested there be
money in a unit account to draw off of as needed so your treasurer
doesn't have to write a check every time something is needed. Only
those persons authorized by the unit committee are allowed to
withdraw money from the account. Registration, charter renewal fees
must be paid in full when submitting any registration. If you have
any questions, please call the council service center.
