Scout Shop

The Chesterfield Scout shop is based in the District HQ building.  See the push-pin in the map below for the exact location of the shop. Note that the shop is accessed via Spencer Street, that access is very narrow, and there is limited parking (though this is usually sufficient). Please also show consideration to local residents. The shop stocks all aspects of Beaver, Cub, Scout and Leader uniforms (which you can try before you buy), as well as T-shirts, neckerchiefs for all groups, camp blankets, badges, pens, caps, and a whole range of other Scouting related paraphernalia. The shop offers all items at very competitive prices (usually the same as is available on the Internet) and all profits go back into Scouting in the local area. The shop is run by experienced volunteers, who are very helpful and adept at getting the right size uniform for your young Beaver, Cub or Scout! Please support your local scout shop by giving it a try.   Opening Times & Location Generally the shop is open on Saturdays from 10 am until 1 pm during term time. The official Scout Shop webpage provides a list of Saturdays the shop will be closed, so please check beforehand to avoid disappointment.
