The wait is over! Girl Scouts throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington are now taking Girl Scout Cookie pre-orders from family, friends and neighbors. Eight varieties, including Thin Mints®, Samoas®, Tagalongs®, Do-si-dos®, Trefoils®, Savannah Smiles®, Rah-Rah Raisins™and gluten free Toffee-tastic™, return for 2016 at the same price of $4 per box (with the exception of Toffee-tastic™, which are $5).
While almost everyone knows about Thin Mints® and Samoas®, few know about the valuable life skills learned through the Girl Scout Cookie Program. Girls learn how to run a small business by actually running a small business.
In addition to traditional door-to-door and booth sales methods, for the second year in a row girls are also selling cookies online to faraway friends and family via Digital Cookie™. The interactive platform is designed to help girls develop and practice online marketing, budgeting, resource allocation and ecommerce skills.
Girls will take pre-orders now through January 24. Don’t know a Girl Scout? No problem! Contactcookies@girlscoutsosw.org to learn more about pre-ordering Girl Scout Cookies. Following the pre-order period, Girl Scouts will sell cookies at booths outside of local retailers February 19 through March 13. Customers can find a booth nearby with the Cookie Locator or use the Cookie Locator app available for iPhone or Android. The iconic Girl Scout Cookie Program only runs through March 13, so act fast before they’re gone! Learn more at girlscoutsosw.org/cookies.
