Girl Scouts extend cookie sales through April 8

Staff Report

Local Girl Scouts have extended their cookie sales through Sunday, April 8.

The extension allows community members added opportunities to purchase cookies at area locations and helps local troops earn increased funding.

Girl Scout Cookie Booths are the final phase of the Girl Scout Cookie Program and allow people to buy Girl Scout cookies through direct sales to the public.

All booth locations accept cash and checks payable to Girl Scouts. All eight varieties of Girl Scout cookies will be on sale for $4 a box.

Cookie fans can find nearby Girl Scout Cookie Booths by using a free Cookie Locator mobile app. The Cookie Locator App can be downloaded for free by calling **GSCookies (**472665437) from your mobile phone or by searching for “Cookie Locator” in the iPhone App Store or Android Marketplace.

Customers can also visit and use the cookie locator on the homepage.
