Girl Scout Cookie Season Returns In Days

The highly popular Girl Scout Cookie season returns February 4 with several events scheduled to celebrate across the Upper Cumberland.

Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee Product Programs Manager Tracy Tudder said cookie booths will start opening outside local grocery stores. Tudder said the program has consistently been very successful in the Upper Cumberland.

“They are doing some miraculous things out there,” Tudder said. “They are going to have some great things happening in February and March. I know they’re having a cookie rally this month, and then I know they are doing a couple other events in February, and then they’re doing another event in March.”

Tudder said ninety-nine percent of cookie sales are from in-person sales but some scouts have created their own Google links to allow their customers to order online as well. Tudder said they are also utilizing Clover Go, a system that allows people to buy Girl Scout Cookies with their credit card.

“Most people just don’t carry cash around like they used to anymore,” Tudder said. “So now we’ve been able to take credit cards just everywhere. So now, even when they deliver those cookies door-to-door, they have that option as a troop to now start taking those credit card sales.”

Tudder said Girl Scout troops always receives an influx of new scouts during the annual cookie-selling season.

“Those girls have gotten really innovate,” Tudder said. “A lot more than, a lot of times they surprise me because they are, they come out with the cutest ideas beyond what I can think of.”

Tudder said people who are not interested in the cookies can purchase a box to be donated to a cause of the scouts’ choosing.

“Some girls will do it for a firehouse or they’ll do it for the police or they’ll do it for maybe that hospital in that area, so check out to see who they are doing their donations for, then you can always buy a box of cookies for that cause as well,” Tudder said.
