Girl Scouts Change Selling Approach
The Central Illinois Girl Scouts are introducing a new sales approach for selling their cookies. They are changing to a direct sale, where scouts will now have the cookies with them when they knock door to door. This changes the old method of ordering the cookies and receiving them a couple weeks later.
Kate Peters, chief of operations for the Central Illinois Girl Scouts, said they hope that this will help make selling the cookies easier for the girls and the costumers.
“Girls will physically have cookies with them, so if girls walk up to you and ask, 'Do you want your Thin Mints?,' the girl will physically have the Thin Mints with her to give to you," Peters said.
Most of the money from cookie sales goes back to the scouts to help pay things like troop activities. The cookies will go on sale beginning February 1.
