WILLMAR -- Official Boy Scout shirts hang in a crisp row of khaki along the back wall at General Mailing.

A collection of pocket knives, some of them emblazoned with the Eagle Scout emblem, reposes in a glass display case.

Looking for a Scout manual or a wilderness survival guide? You'll find it among the selection of books for sale. Sleeping bags, hiking socks or lightweight camping gear? Owner Jeff Warszynski has those too.
