Pick-Up Details

  • Your popcorn must be picked up between 8:00am and 9:30am. Unfortunately there is no flexibility with this since we are working within the time constraints of our friends at this location.

  • When you arrive at your pick-up location, be sure to sign in. Distribution is on a first come-first serve basis.

  • All paperwork necessary for picking up your popcorn will be provided by the council staff when you arrive.

  • We have been advised by EMC that the loading dock area that we use to distribute the popcorn may be in use by EMC as well as by us. They have asked us to let our leaders know that because of all of the activity that will be taking place in the dock area no person under the age of 18 will be allowed inside the building.


Information to Help Plan for Popcorn Pick Up Day

Before you can deliver it, youíve got to pick it up. At the warehouse we can accommodate all types of vehicles including trucks. In fact, we encourage units with large orders (anything over 100 cases) to rent or borrow trucks to pick up the popcorn. Many of the rental agencies extend discounts to Scout groups. Please make sure you have enough vehicles to handle your order. Use the chart below to predict how many vehicles you need. Deduct 4-5 cases from the numbers shown for each passenger (child, dog, etc.) that comes with a driver.  This chart also assumes that your vehicle will be empty and cleaned out. The warehouse is busy and potentially dangerous. Please try to avoid bringing young children and pets if at all possible.

The process of picking up popcorn will be as quick and painless as possible. If your unit will be moving product with several vehicles make sure the other drivers know the name and number of your unit to prevent confusion. We always appreciate your patience.

At the warehouse we will not permit any sorting of product by dens, patrols or individual vehicles. This takes too much time, creates chaos, and is simply unfair to units waiting to get to the warehouse. We recommend that you sort your densí or patrolsí orders at a separate site. If weather permits you can sort nearby, but you must be completely clear of the warehouse area. Most units choose to count and distribute their densí and patrolsí popcorn at a separate site such as a church or school.
