Girl Scout cookie sales begin Oct. 6by jmaloni
Local Girl Scouts will put their sales and marketing skills into action as they strive to reach an unprecedented goal of selling 1.7 million boxes of cookies, as part of the Girl Scout Cookie Program.
"When a Girl Scout sells you cookies, she's doing more than just handing you a box. She's creating a plan, interacting with customers, and working as part of a team. She's building a lifetime of skills and confidence, which validates an important part of Girl Scouting which is to inspire girls to reach their full potential," said CEO Cindy L. Odom.
The cookies will sell for $3.50 per box, like previous years. All the popular flavors are back - Caramel de Lites, Lemonades, Peanut Butter Sandwich, Peanut Butter Patties, Thanks-A-Lot, and Thin Mints. As well as a new packaging look, a new flavor has been added to the roster, Mango Crèmes. This kind of cookie is a refreshing tropical treat, infused with Nutrifusion.
Over the next two-and-a-half months, girls will take orders door-to-door in their neighborhoods, and set up "cookie booths" at convenient locations as well as organizing neighborhood walkabouts. For more information, call Trina Tardone at 716-935-6020 or go tohttp://www.gswny.org/.
