April 20, 2020 (HARRISBURG, Pa.)– With the chocolate bunny from recent Easter baskets already eaten, many people are indulging in Girl Scout Cookies. And, since the Girl Scout Cookie Program has been extended through May 31st (one of the positive results of the social distancing and stay-at-home directives), customers can easily find local Girl Scout troops that are activity selling by using a sweet new tool – the Cookie Pop Up Shop! Retailers have been using the “pop-up” shop concept for years and by moving the popular idea online, customers can quickly find a local troop, connect with Girl Scouts selling Girl Scout Cookies…and (even better!) get discounted shipping on direct delivery of nine (9) or more packages of those tasty treats.
The newly launched Cookie Pop Up Shop enables customers to punch in a zip code and bring up a list of troops actively selling Girl Scout Cookies. The digital tool is available on the Girl Scouts of the Heart of PA website under the Find Cookies page.
To make fulfillment of the cookie craving just a bit more appealing, Girl Scouts is offering discounted shipping on purchases made through the Digital Online purchase platform. Just purchase nine (9) or more packages of cookies from a Girl Scout using her Digital Cookie platform, and $5 comes off the shipping fee.
While most people have their favorite cookie, it’s also important to remember that the Cookie Program not only satisfies customers’ demand for Thin Mints®, Samoas® or Do-si-Dos®, it also provides an opportunity for Girl Scouts to develop five essential skills:
Here’s an introduction to each delicious cookie, in case customers need help to select a favorite.
