The Trading Post

The Tradingpost is now active from Thursday to Saturday. We can’t yet allow people into the shop, but you can order by e-mail or phone and collect.

The Trading Post is your local Uniform shop in Norwich, supplying you with Scout & Guide uniforms, scarves, badges, books, blankets and much more! If we don’t have what you’re looking for in stock, we will order it for you and can supply anything available from Scout Shops and Girlguiding UK.

Postal Service

It’s always best to try on uniform if you can, but you can’t get in to visit our shop, we can post your order directly to you, wherever you are for usually only £3.20 We can take a card payment over the phone and post out your order the next day.

Loyalty Vouchers

We issue loyalty vouchers for each £10 spent which parents should hand in to their group/unit leaders to be redeemed at the end of the year. This means all profits from sales at The Trading Post go directly back to local Scouting and Guiding.
