Scout Shop


Greetings to all Leaders in Northern Ireland Scouting:

Your Scout Shop, under the new management of Simon McWhirter (a former Queen’s Scout) wants the whole Northern Ireland Scouting family to make full use of its facilities and services. Simon is introducing some novel product lines, overseeing the introduction of an improved website for on-line sales, and encouraging all Scout Groups to take advantage of the Rewards Plus loyalty scheme.

With good buying and keen pricing you can still be assured that you will not get better value in terms of quality and price from any other competitors in the marketplace.


Most importantly Simon wants you to give him feedback on all aspects of the Shop service and product offering – do contact him at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

2) The Website

The Shop website has been re-launched with the new Shop branding of

discover outdoors 

You will find our new web site more user friendly and you can either browse and call the staff on 028 9032 0580 for more details on what takes your fancy, or buy on-line then and there. Look out for our regular ‘Special Offers’ and buy with confidence at http://www.discoveroutdoorsuk.com.

3) Rewards Plus Reminder

To encourage the loyalty of Scout Groups, including all friends, parents and families associated with them, the Shop has introduced the Rewards Plus Scheme.

Once you’ve registered your Group with the Shop (using our simple Application Form) every £10 spent * by anyone who declares their connection with your group, will generate a £1 credit that your group can use to get more shop products – don’t miss out on this bonus which spreads the benefits of supporting the Scout Shop to your own group!!

Get your Scout Group registered and start the credits piling up!!

(*Please remember that Rewards Plus credits don’t have a cash value, can’t be earned in connection with any other promotion, and cannot be applied to sales of uniform, badges or publications.)

4) Credit Accounts

Following a review of our operations, effective from 1st October 2011, all credit account facilities are being withdrawn. This will reduce office processes and the costs of administration, freeing up time to improve services for you. Payment can of course be made by cash, cheque or credit/debit card. We would encourage your Group to organise their finances so that Leaders can promptly be reimbursed and not be out of pocket in respect of any purchases thy have made.

Remember that unlike all the Scout Shop’s competitors, the profits of the Shop go to benefit Scouting in Northern Ireland.

Please Support your Shop!
