With pandemic restrictions in place, teams of uniformed Girl Scouts rocking their award sashes won’t be stationed outside your local grocery store, nor will their parents be soliciting orders from colleagues in the break rooms at their workplaces. Girl Scout officials say they are pivoting, as other businesses are, to online sales. Buyers can go to ilovecookies.org, click or tap the Cookie tab, and put in a zip code at “Find a Cookie Entrepreneur.”

In this largely digital cookie season, the GSNorCal Online Shop Locator is the key to connecting girls to their customers. GSNorCal customers can search for girls and troops' online shops local to their zip code, and the Locator is promoted in all 19 counties in the council. Girls who opt-in to the Locator and submit their online shop URL by 2/7 will receive three free packages of cookies to gift to friends and family and spread joy!
