The Girl Scouts Have Stepped Into the 21st-Century, You Can Now Buy Your ThinMints Online!
If you love the taste of Girl Scout Cookies, but hate the thought of another young girl ringing your doorbell, and attempting to shake you down into buying a few boxes, your day has arrived my friend.
Last week, the Girl Scouts announced they'll be doing something they've never done before, selling all their Girl Scout cookies online!
Up until this point, they've resisted selling online because face-to-face sales were such a good learning experience for young girls. But now they have come to the realization they are leaving a ton of dough (and I don't mean cookie) on the table.
So now they have revised the Girl Scouts game plan to include online sales because, quote "This will also allow customers to help girls learn 21st-century skills grounded in technology."
Yeah, that's the ticket!
There's no need to worry about the added online sales dimension, each local Girls Scouts region will handle the sales and distribution in their area, so your money will still be going to support your local Girl Scouts.
And by the way girls, you can still ring my doorbell anytime. My wife and I are suckers for several boxes of those Peanut Butter Patties.
