Girl Scouts introduce direct sales for 2013

BIRMINGHAM — The Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama (GSNCA) will launch direct sales across the council this cookie season. Instead of taking pre-orders, Girl Scouts will have their cookies in mid-January to sell immediately. Booth sales at many local stores and supermarkets will start Jan. 25, 2013.

Cookies offered include all-time favorites: Thin Mints, Samoas, Trefoils, Tagalongs, Do-si-dos, Savannah Smiles (100th anniversary cookie), Dulce de Leche and Thank U Berry Munch. Each box sells for $3.50. All eight varieties of Girl Scout Cookies contain zero grams of trans fat. Girl Scout cookies are a low-sodium treat, and some varieties weigh in at only 28 calories (Savannah Smiles) and 40 calories (Thin Mints) per cookie!

Even if you participate in a weight loss plan, you can still help girls by purchasing cookies as part of our Cookies for Troops campaign, and have your cookies sent overseas to service members.

Through the Girl Scout Cookie Program, an integral part of Girl Scouting’s Financial Literacy initiative for girls ages 5 to 17, girls learn skills that will last them a lifetime: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics. This girl-led business allows girls to set a goal and create action plans leading toward that goal. Girl Scouts use funds from the cookie program to fund a Take Action project or to plan an exciting trip. Cookie funds are also used to attend council programs.

Beginning the week of Jan. 25, customers can visit girlscoutsnca.org and use the Cookie Locator button to find a booth sale near them or call 800-734-4541. Customers may also download the free Girl Scout Cookie App for iPhone or Android. The app tells customers when and where booth sales will take place in their area, and map them to the location.

In 2012, the Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama sold over 1.4 million boxes of Girl Scout Cookies in 36 counties. For more information, visit girlscoutsnca.org/cookies.
