We went in as first time scouts looking for a shirt and patches. We had bought all of our other stuff used in an attempt to save money, because were on a budget. The guy at the scout shop informed us that everything had been redesigned and we could not use anything we had purchased used. When he showed us the new design, we pointed out that it wasnt terribly different from the old design and didnt understand why we had to buy all new, but he told us that our child would not be in full uniform without it and everyone would notice. He made it very clear that we were choosing between following the rules and social ostracism. So instead of putting our child through that, we ended up spending $100 on new stuff after spending $40 on the used stuff, meaning instead of saving money, we paid MORE than the average scout does. I was really upset. Well, just today, we went to our first "in-uniform" meeting, and guess what? Half the den had the old pattern, stuff they had inherited from older brothers. And you know what else? No one said a word to them, some of whom were the sons of leaders, about not being in proper uniform. But our son wore the new stuff, and got it dirty, so it isnt returnable. Our experience with the Scout Shop definitely cast a shade over the beginnings of our scouting experiences. Hopefully, well find the individual pack and dens more understanding.
***SEPT 2016 Traffic is heavy in this area as a general rule, and there is a lot of construction going on due to the new baseball stadium being built, so use caution*** While I do find this stuff a bit pricey, the store part was well organized and clean. It was busy but the employees were helpful and attentive anyway. Talk to your pack or troop BEFORE going to find out what is the norm (can vary from group to group). For example my sons pack doesnt care if he wears the BSA shorts or his own, and provides neckerchiefs. I noticed there was some other fun parts of this building my scout would enjoy that depict stone history so I will be bringing him down when we need to be in the area.
I love doing in the Scout Shop. The people are friendly. Everything you could possibly want for camping exploring or learning is in there. More often than not one of the staff members can actually tell you how to use all the little gizmos and gadgets they sell because their Eagle Scouts or have been.
It may be a hike away from me (about 30 minutes) but its worth the drive; you can find anything from badges to pants to even pocketknives. Its all reasonably priced. Ive been through the BSA system now for 10 years and Ive done all my shopping through the Atlanta Scout Store
Very nice scout shop (not the most conveniently located as this is a VERY busy area of town, especially with the new stadium) I just picked up a new scout shirt and all my patches. I chose to have the shop sow them on and it was ready by the next day.
The checkout and staff is nice enough but so slow at doing any and everything that I just wonder why they seem to all be coming oht of retirement to work at the boy scouts shop.
Had to turn in some Eagle Scout paperwork. They were helpful, friendly, and quick. Scout shop was great. My kids love it.
