A factory with a sales area called the Coleman store is in Wichita. I
don't live in Wichita, but several of our scout leaders go there and
make a stop at the store. I am trying to get ahold of them but no one
is home at teh time this message is written. As soon as I can get
ahold of some one I will let you know where in Wichita it is.
They give a discount to scouters. They also like to frequent
Scouting activities with lots of merchandise at greatly reduced
prices. We were at the merit badge conference in Hays, KS and the
Coleman people showed up. We bought 3 two man dome tents and 3
three man dome tents for about $45 each. They were selling two
burner propane stoves for about $20. They sold fast!
