At long last, you will finally be able to order Girl Scout cookies online! The Girl Scout Council has long been pondering whether this would be a good move given safety and privacy concerns, but they now feel confident about letting girls take the plunge. Girls and their troops will be able to opt in individually, choosing either traditional or digital sales.
This isn’t supposed to replace the traditional face-to-face sales, but supplement those sales. They also see it as an opportunity for girls to learn by allowing them to build their own sites and even create videos to promote sales. All of this will be done while still keeping personal information private. Buyers will see only a first name unless they’ve been sent a personal invitation.
