The Chickasaw Council Scout Shop address is:
Chickasaw Council Scout Shop
171 South Hollywood Street
Memphis, Tennessee 38122
Scout Shop phone: (901) 323-7281
They may have an "800" #, I'll post it when/if I can find it.
Council phone: (901) 327-4193
Council Fax: (901) 327-2010
I'm there at least once a week and generally have good luck finding what I
need; their staff is generally overworked (who isn't these days?) but
in addition to their staff positions they are also volunteers in packs,
troops and posts in our Council.
Since I'm so close to the shop I've never had to order anything to be sent
out, but, it seems that every time I'm there one of the clerks is on the
phone taking an order from out of town. Of course since the merger of the
Chickasaw Council and Delta Council in Mississippi, I'm sure lots of those
out-of-town orders are within our own council.
Hope this helps; just adding my two cents worth!
