First Opportunity To Return Popcorn

Monday, October 7, 2019
5-7 p.m.
Center for Scouting, Mankato

Attention all Popcorn Kernels!  Now is the time to determine how much product your unit has on hand.  Do you have Scouts that have sold nothing but are in possession of product?  Do you have Scouts needing product?  Between today and Monday, October 7, 2019, determine what you have available and redistribute your product to those Scouts selling.  

Any excess product can be returned to Council on Monday, October 7, 2019, between the hours of 5-7p.m.

Units will be allowed to return a maximum of 50% of the value of your original Show ‘n Sell order.   

Please bring your product to the Scout Shop door (not the garage).  Product should be in cardboard cases.  Cases do not need to be full.

Beginning on Tuesday, October 8, 2019, this returned product will be made available to everyone for sales.  First come first served.

Please contact Shelley with questions 507-387-3123.
