The 2017 Girl Scout Cookie Program is here and this year marks the celebration of 100 years of Girl Scouts selling cookies! Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois (GSSI) will kick off the iconic cookie program January 6-8 during the first Cookie Booth Weekend of the season. At these Cookie Booths, customers can purchase cookies directly from troops set up at local establishments throughout southern Illinois. From Jan. 7 to Jan. 28, Girl Scouts will take orders for the delicious treats–which will be delivered in late February.
To get connected to a Girl Scout in your area, please call 800.345.6858 or visit http://bit.ly/CookieFinder. Customer demand for Girl Scout Cookies following delivery has been high historically, so additional Cookie Booth Weekends will be held from late February through March. In addition to cookie booths and traditional orders, girls will also be able to sell Girl Scout cookies online through a safe, interactive platform called Digital Cookie. Digital Cookie combines traditional sales activities with today’s technology to help girls learn more about online marketing and ecommerce.
