Girl Scout Cookie sales begin in earnest

Thursday, February 13, 2020

The Girl Scout Cookie campaign has an uplifting message for 2020.

A new cookie, Lemon-Ups, include inspiring messages baked onto the cookies such as “I’m a go-getter” and “I’m an innovator.”

The scouts began taking orders last month, but you can find the young entrepreneurs with actual boxes of cookies to sell outside local businesses this month.

** Fred Meyer, 695 S. Highway 101, Warrenton: 5-7 p.m. Feb. 14; 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Feb. 15; 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Feb. 16; 5-7 p.m. Feb. 21; 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Feb. 22; 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Feb. 23; 5-7 Feb. 28; 10-6 Feb. 29;

** Walmart, 1791 Ensign Lane, Warrenton: Noon to 2 p.m. Feb. 15; Noon to 4 p.m. Feb. 22; noon-2 Feb. 29;

There will be additional sales days in early March, and there will be scouts at the Safeway stores in Astoria and Seaside.

All net revenue earned from cookie sales remains within the local region.

“I am inspired by the life skills that are being developed in the cookie program,” said Victoria Foreman, director of the product program for Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington. “Girls are developing a strong sense of self by participating, learning skills to succeed, and problem solve to manage setbacks as they build their Cookie businesses.”

There are 14,500 girls in kindergarten through 12th grade in the local region.
