Scout Shops and office locations

Ann Arbor Service Center and National Supply Store will open in mid June!

Our temporary office on Plymouth road will be closing Wednesday, May 7th.  In late June, our new store and office will open at 3914 Bestech Drive, Ypsilanti, Michigan 48104-4199.  This new location is just south of I-94, east of US-23 and north of US-12 off Carpenter Rd.  It is our desire to serve all our current and future Scouting families with a location conveniently based near a major interstate in a retail market.

While this absence may sound like an inconvenience for upcoming Pack Meetings, Courts of Honor and camp uniform purchases - We hope not!

The National BSA Scout Shops located in Troy, Detroit, and Flint, MI will offer free shipping if you are a BSA member from Hillsdale, Jackson, Lenawee, Livingston, Monroe or Washtenaw Counties. Use this link for telephone and fax information to place orders - Link

Be sure you have your unit number and district name handy so they can verify your membership.  The free shipping promotion begins Thursday May 8th and ends at the close of business, Friday June 20th.

When we open in June, the Ann Arbor Scout Shop will be the home office to the Territory Manager, Karen Thiel.  Karen brings both a veteran Scouting background as well as currently being responsible for all the National Scout Shop operations within the state of Michigan.

November 2011 was an instrumental year in the development of the new Scouting structure in the state of Michigan.  The Area 2 Project studied the impact on Scouting and presented the Crossroads Recommendation, which proposed that the nine existing Councils in Michigan merge into one large Council.  As a result in 2012 Southern Shores Field Service Council was created from the merging of two Council, the Southwest Michigan Council and Great Sauk Trail Council.
