Girl Scouts

To the Editor,

If you feel like you have eaten 39 boxes of Samoa Girl Scout Cookies yourself over the years, it might be because you have eaten a box per year since the iconic coconut and chocolate taste treats were first brought to your door business-savvy Girl Scouts nearly 40 years ago.

Be prepared to celebrate the 40th birthday of the Samoa with your 40th box soon. Local Girl Scouts will be selling the cookies door-to-door, and new this year, online, beginning on January 8th for just $3.50 a box, one of the lowest prices for Girl Scout cookies in the country.

The brand new online Cookie Sale platform will allow local Girl Scouts to maintain their own protected, personalized website to market their cookie business to local consumers, accept orders via credit card, and activate cookie shipments directly to customers or bring them to their home.

This means consumers who know Girl Scouts may receive emarketing materials from them this season with invitations to visit their cookie websites and make purchases.

“Girl Scouts have always gained valuable business skills like goal-setting, decision making, money management, respect, courtesy, and ethics from participating in the faceto face cookie sale, said Denise Schemenauer, CEO of our local Girl Scout Council, Manitou Council.

“Through Digital Cookie, we are bringing the Girl Scout Cookie Program fully into the 21st century, helping Girl Scouts build skills in online marketing, application use, and e-commerce.”

As with the traditional cookie sale, 100% of the revenue earned remains local. Girls decide how to spend their troop cookie money and reinvest it back into the community through service projects and other Girl Scout learning experiences.

Eighty-five percent of troop activities are funded by the Girl Scout Cookie Sale.

Following the door-to-door and online sale, Girl Scout troops will be conducting cookie booth sales in public sites.

If no Girl Scout came to your door, contacted you by phone or online, or you just need a 41st box of Samoas, you can find a local booth at
