No. In order to maintain good relationships with property managers, stores and to be fair, walkabouts are only allowed in non-commercial areas. All booth sales must be coordinated through the council, including driveway booths.
Join GSGC’s first ever Girl Scout Cookie Walkabout during National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend, Feb. 23-25!
Girl Scouts will walk their neighborhood selling cookies door to door. This is a great opportunity to visit customers you might have missed in January — or to revisit customers who need to restock!
Who can resist when a Girl Scout is at their door with their favorite cookies?! Going door to door one of the most effective ways to sell Girl Scout Cookies. In fact, according to a national study, 78 percent of customers who were not approached during a cookie sale said they would have purchased 2-4 boxes if asked!
Girl Scouts who participate in a walkabout during National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend are eligible to earn a special patch! Here’s what you need to do:
