Construction Update

Friends of Scouting!
wall colors,
We have seen some progress over the past two weeks.  The new Counters and Cabinets are all in (see photo).  The main flooring is installed but we are waiting for the carpet to come in.  That along with the new doors are expected to be done the first week of February.

If you drive by after today, you will see that the west parking lot has been removed as well as most of the concrete.  The contractor will be repaving the entire lot but will do one side now and the other when Phase 2 of the project begins around mid February.

Our new furniture has arrived in Amarillo but we are waiting for Phase 1 to be done and we are allowed to move.

We've been making lots of decisions as of late as to wall colors, floor patterns, some security issues, and other areas of concern.  This is a huge undertaking and all decisions are being made with Scouts and volunteers in mind.  We think you will be really impressed when you see the final product.

We will ask for your patience once we move back to our "new" area.  The Scout Shop will undertake the biggest part of the move as we relocate them to the new warehouse and set up to continue to meet your needs.  We may be closed for a day or two to get ready but we will announce any plans ahead of time to try to limit the inconvenience.

Look for more soon!

Construction Update

Hello Friends of Scouting!

We hope you had a great holiday and are ready to get back to Scouting!!!!

Lots of construction has taken place since the last post.  The new flooring in the hallway and main business area has been installed.  The paint is all done throughout the new areas.  The heaters are installed in the Warehouse and all the security systems are back working.

We have a new water heater that actually puts out hot water and the biggest item that is really noticeable is the new building has new stonework that matches the existing stonework that's been on for 30 plus years.

We are looking at the first week of February to be done with Phase 1 and we are looking forward to that!
