**Due to inclement weather, the #Cookies2Go cookie booth visits have been rescheduled to Feb. 6. Updated booth locations TBA.**
Along with the arrival of wintry weather, Girl Scout cookies are back and on sale now. Girl Scouts – NC Coastal Pines kicked off its 2016 Girl Scout Cookie Sale program on January 16, and beginning Saturday, January 23, Girl Scout cookies will be sold at thousands of cookie booths throughout central and eastern North Carolina.
“When customers purchase a box of Girl Scout Cookies, they are supporting a program helping girls grow into leaders in their own life, in business, and in their communities,” said Lisa Jones, chief executive officer of Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines. “These are more than just cookies – they’re opportunities.”
And customers will have nearly 1,500 opportunities to support girls and purchase cookies this weekend. As cookie booth season kicks off, local Girl Scout troops will host 985 booths on Saturday, January 23, and 504 booths on Sunday, January 24, across the Girl Scout Council’s 41-county territory.
The Girl Scouts’ Retail Van, affectionately named Savannah after Girl Scouting’s birthplace, will visit six Raleigh area cookies booths on Saturday (locations and time listed below). Customers will have an opportunity to win a year’s worth of Girl Scout cookies by participating in a #Cookies2Go social media contest. All customers need to do is snap a photo with Savannah, post on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, and they will automatically be entered in a drawing to win.
This year’s cookie lineup boasts nine varieties including the longtime favorite Thin Mints®, Peanut Butter Patties, Peanut Butter Sandwiches, Shortbread, Thanks-A-Lots®, Caramel deLites®, Lemonadesä, and gluten-free Trios®. Each variety sells for $4.00 per box.
The Buy 5 Program is available again for the 2016 sale. By purchasing five boxes, customers are also eligible to enter to a second drawing to win a year’s worth of their favorite Girl Scout Cookies. Girl Scout Cookies will be sold throughout the Girl Scouts – NC Coastal Pines council territory through Sunday, March 6, 2016.
