How to Get to the Service Center

McFarland Road is just east of Perryville Road., one of Rockford’s main north-south streets on the east side of town. It runs just a few block west of and parallel to the I-90/I-39 expressway. The service Center, 2820 McFarland, is just a block north of the corner of Spring Creek Road and McFarland. This is the same corner on which you find JMK Nippon, the Japanese Restaurant. If you pass Woodman’s Grocery, you’ve gone too far north.

Scout Shop Hours:

Monday - Wednesday - Thursday & Friday 8:30 am - 5:30pm
Tuesday  8:30 am - 7:00 pm
Saturday  9:00 am - 3:00 pm
