It's that time of year again! Girl Scout will soon sell cookies near local businesses
PORTLAND, Ore. – Starting Friday, Girl Scouts in Oregon and Southwest Washington will begin selling their cookies at booths outside grocery stores and other locations.
The Girl Scouts will be selling cookies from more than 30,000 booths between Friday, Feb. 16 and Sunday, March 11 for $5 per box.
"A Girl Scout Cookie booth is basically a pop-up shop and these young women are entrepreneurs selling an iconic product. As they're talking with community members at booths, they're learning people skills. As they're making decisions about their cookie business, they're practicing skills that prepare them for a successful future,” said Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington director of product sales Paige Walker.
Anyone interested in finding a booth can download and use the official Girl Scout Cookie Finder App.
One hundred percent of the net revenue earned from cookie sales remains within the local region.
Cookie sales help provide unique opportunities for local girls, including educational experiences, camping and travel expenses.
