Booth sales locations — Council coordinated booth sales held at Fred Meyers, Safeway, Wal-Mart, Lowes, PX, and Sam’s club. Troops can coordinate booth sales at other locations. Council approval required.

Learn how to make the most of your time at booth sales with these fun tips:

  • Put out Girl Scout signs
  • Have the girls where the cookie costumes or full uniform.
  • Decorate your booth with activities your troop has accomplished.
  • Create bundle packs to sell to customers (contact council office for details).
  • Have a sample tray for customers to try the irresistible cookies.
  • Make a sign that states where your troop proceeds will go or what organization the gift of caring is going towards.
