MOORE — This year’s Girl Scouts cookie sale began on Jan. 27 and already many girls and volunteers are reporting selling out of their original orders.
“Just after the first week of the cookie sale, girls had moved an average of 2,598 cases per day from the council’s cookie cupboard,” said Barbara Mitchell, director of product sales for Girl Scouts-Western Oklahoma, who reminds everyone that there are 12 boxes in a case of cookies. “Among the most popular cookies this year is the new lemon cookie called Savannah Smiles that was made in honor of the 100th Anniversary of Girl Scouts. Girls are off to a great start and many of them are well on their way to reaching their goal for the year.”
Mitchell said once the cookie booth sales start on Feb. 17, people will be able to see for themselves how girls will be using their cookie money.
Girl Scout cookies sell for $3.50 a box. Girl Scouts of Eastern Oklahoma sell cookies at $4 per box. Mitchell asked that anyone who sees cookies selling for more than that should contact the council office. The cookie sale runs through March 11.
