Girl Scout Cookie Weekend Feb. 7-9 kicks off cookie season
Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay will kick off National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend Feb. 7, 8 and 9 with the first delivery of cookies to the Delmarva Peninsula.
For the first time, Girl Scout cookies will be available on carts at Christiana Mall, Dover Mall and the Centre at Salisbury Feb. 7 through March 9. The carts will be open during mall hours. Also, Girl Scout Cookies will be available at several Walmarts on the Delmarva Peninsula during National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend.
Trucks will begin delivering cases of cookies to Girl Scout troops Saturday, Feb. 8. The deliveries will run through Thursday, Feb. 13. Girl Scouts will deliver preordered cookies to their customers and prepare for regular cookie booths beginning Friday, Feb. 14.
For ease of purchase, customers can find their Thin Mints, Samoas, and other favorite Girl Scout cookies by using the official Girl Scout Cookie Finder app, available free for iPhone or Android by visiting the newly refreshed official Girl Scout Cookie page at www.girlscoutcookies.org. All GSCB Cookie Booths can be located through the Cookie Finder.
The world’s largest girl-led business, the nearly $800 million cookie program aims to teach girls five essential life skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, business ethics, and people skills. As part of their experience in various Girl Scout activities, girls can earn official Girl Scout awards at every level of Girl Scouting, including cookie and financial literacy badges and an annual Girl Scout Cookie Activity pin.
