Oak Park residents who missed the opportunity to order Girl Scout Cookies from their local Girl Scout can still buy the delicious Thin Mints and Tagalongs at a location close to them. Girl Scouts are setting up booths throughout Oak Park during March.
Customers can go to www.girlscoutcookies.org and enter their zip code to find the location nearest Tech savvy cookie lovers can download Girl Scouts' free Cookie Locator™ mobile application for iPhone® and Android™. The free Cookie Locator app lets customers find cookies on sale close to their home or office by tapping into the phone's GPS or using a local zip code, city or state. To download the app, customers can call **GSCOOKIES (**4722665437) from their mobile phones.
Customers have eight varieties of cookies from which to choose: The Savannah Smile, Thank U Berry Munch, Samoas, Thin Mints, Trefoils, Tagalongs, Do-si-does, and Dulce de Leche.
The Girl Scout Cookie Program is about more than purchasing boxes of the annual treat. It's about the valuable skills a girl gains from participating including: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics. Girls and adults interested in joining or becoming volunteers should visit www.girlscoutsgcnwi.org.
