Pack 17 Popcorn Sale 2014

The Pack 17 Popcorn Sale is in full swing! We are in the process of completing the show and sell activity and are on to the take orders. The take order is the most traditional way to sell; going door-to-door with the take order form. Your customer chooses the product(s) he or she wishes to buy and writes the order on your form. You can either collect the money at the time of sale or collect when you deliver the product to your customers a few weeks later. It is advisable to collect up front so you don’t have to make multiple trips back to collect. Take order forms need to be submitted to your den leader by October 21, 2014. Take order forms were handed out at the first pack meeting. If you still need a form, please contact Mark Gilmor, Popcorn Chairman, and he will get it to you.

Selling online is the best way to sell to your friends and family who live out of town. You can send emails to your customers asking them to purchase Trail’s End products online. Your customers click on the link in your email and can begin shopping right away. They order products online and pay with a credit card, and Trail’s End ships the products directly to your customers.
