Sign up for a 2 hour shift in front of a local business. The EASIEST way to sell!
To make the sale as easy as possible for Scouts, the Popcorn Leadership Team has arranged to have a table full of popcorn set up in front of various local businesses.
We provide the popcorn, table, cashbox, credit card reader, EVERYTHING
We just need Scouts to register for a shift! https://www.trails-end.com/seller/sales/storefront and then:
Arrive 5 minutes early. The Scouts on the shift before you can help you get started.
Wear your Class A (official button down) Uniform
SMILE, and ask people if they would like to Support Scouting! It's THAT easy!
Important Notes about Storefront Sales:
The Scouts will earn sales credit based on the number of hours worked, NOT based on the actual sales.
Why? Because this sale is about more than just raising money. Storefront sales help Scouts learn to not be confident and not shy around strangers. They learn to set goals, to communicate with adults, and to appropriately handle rejection. Additionally, Scouts are expected to Do Their Best, and should be rewarded for that, even if situations were not in their favor. For example, the Scout shouldn't be penalized for signing up for a shift that had slow sales because of rain.
Historical Average Storefront Credit >= $150 in sales for each 2-hr storefront worked.
Sales Credit Calculation: The average shift sales for ALL shifts on ALL days by ALL Scouts.
Trail's End Online Store:
Sell to your friends and family ACROSS THE COUNTRY!
Support Hometown Heroes (Police, Fire, Military, Teachers, Public Servants, etc.)
Monetary donations of are gladly accepted for the Hometown Heroes project. All donations collected in this way provide popcorn to be given to local "heroes" such as Police, Fire, Military, Teachers, Vets, etc. to thank them for the important work that they do.
Hometown Hero donations still count towards a Scout’s sales total and all prize/scout credit calculations. If you know of a local Hometown Hero that you would like to benefit from the project, please contact me with details.
If someone would like to donate money to the Pack/Troop itself, we will gladly accept. The Scout will still earn a % towards their Scout Account for donations made this way. However, please be aware that direct donations like this will NOT count toward the various prizes that Scouts can earn via the Popcorn Sales Program.

I was in a different Unit last year. How do I change to Pack 60 / Troop 559
Because we are running join sale between Pack 60 and Troop 559, ALL Scouts MUST be registered in Trail's End with Pack 9060, because we are running a combined operation. If you accidentally registered for Troop 559, or you were with a different unit last year:
Log in to your Trail's End Dashboard
On the left side, when it displays your Name, District, Council and Scout Code, click on the "down arrow" and select "Change Unit". Then select:
Northern Star Council
Click the 3 horizontal lines in the upper-left corner to open the menu
Click on Settings
Click on Change Unit
Northern Star Council
I'm not seeing any storefronts in the App/Website
Make sure that you are registered as part of Pack 9060. If you are registered at part of Troop 559, or a different unit from last year, you will need to change your unit to be Pack 9060.
