Girl Scouts have begun taking orders for cookies and will have the cookies ready to be delivered and sold at booths around town March 1- 17. The Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches girls how to do more than just sell cookies, as they learn business skills such as how to market their product, budget the money they earn, plan activities, and work with other girls.
This year you can find the girl scout cookie booth locations by downloading and using the free cookie finder app for smartphones. The app locates the cookies by your GPS location. Another new factor this year allows customers to pay with credit cards at the booths by using smartphones to accept credit cards with one swipe.
