GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — The pandemic changed how girls scouts can sell this year. In light of COVID-19, you are able to support a girl or troop, by ordering on websites now, along with GrubHub starting February 12.
The cookie booths are mostly done alone this time where girls work even harder to reach their goals. Under supervision, scouts like McKenzie can promote the cookies and keep the line moving.
“That line was a little overwhelming,” McKenzie reflects, “It was definitely successful. It was really fun to be able to sell to all those people and interact with them. That was definitely going to be a big step for me getting my goal.”
Flying solo, each girl scout shows skills in design, public speaking, and money management. Safety rules still apply and customers are thrilled to buy every box they can.
“I love girl scout cookies, this season is my favorite time of season,” Ruby expresses.
“I’ve been looking forward to it for a long time. I bought five boxes, very happy with it,” Tara shares.
“I bought five, definitely planning to come again when they run out,” Alyssa reports.
Cookie booths will happen in multiple locations at various times. Girl Scout Cookies will be sold altogether until March 7.
Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Dos-si-Dos, and Lemon-Ups are $4/package. S’mores and gluten-free Toffee-tastic are $5/package.
