news-post-mobile-shop

The 2016 Girl Scout membership year is here and fall hours at the shop have begun. We are pleased to offer extended hours during the week, as well as once a month Saturday hours, for your convenience. Visit the shop page for a full list of our hours and locations.

River Valleys’ Retail Plans

We strive to offer shop presence in locations that meet the needs of our members and volunteers. At this time, there are no planned changes or closures to any of the shop or satellite locations we have in the Twin Cities metropolitan area, Rochester, or Mankato. The new Rochester shop will remain in the convenient Crossroads location after the renovations are complete at Edith Mayo. We will continue to evaluate how well the mobile shop rotation is meeting the needs of our members and may add or change stops as appropriate.

New Mobile Shop Stop Added

We are excited to announce that based on volunteer and member feedback we have received, we will be adding a stop in Northfield to the Mobile shop rotation, beginning October 22. The shop will be open from 2:30-6:30 pm, in the Gathering Room at the Northfield Area YMCA, on the following days: October 22, November 23, December 21, and every fourth Thursday from January-May.

To help us ensure we have sufficient quantities of the items you’d like to purchase available at your stop, we highly recommend preordering. You can place orders as late as the Tuesday of the week the mobile shop will be in your area by emailing retailservices@girlscoutsrv.org. When submitting an order, please be sure to include which mobile shop location you will be picking the order up from.

Troop Support at Mobile Shop Stops

Troop Support will be available at each mobile shop stop to answer questions and to provide general support on topics such as journeys and badges, troop operations, meeting and activity plans, travel, and higher awards. Additional training opportunities will also be available several times per year at the mobile shop, beginning with our Troop Leader 101 training from 5:30-6:30 pm on the following dates:
