Cash In Selling Girl Scout Cookies Near Dispensaries
Selling Girl Scout cookies in front of dispensaries a good idea?
Over the weekend a southern California girl sold over 300 boxes of Girl Scout cookies when she set up shop in front of a local dispensary. Isn't retail rule #1 "location, location, location"?
Grand Junction Girl Scout Troop 17-104 started selling cookies over the weekend. Our Townsquare HR Director borrowed one of our radio station vans to pick up her daughter's allotment because they had "too many to fit in the car."
The cookie revenue supports the girls in developing "lifelong skills such as goal setting, money management, and people skills" that's according to the Girl Scouts of America Colorado. Back in 2014, the organization felt it necessary to post a memo after a young lady sold over a 100 boxes outside of a San Francisco dispensary. "If you are wondering, we don't allow our Girl Scouts to sell cookies in front of marijuana shops or liquor stores/bars," the organization's Colorado branch tweeted. However, where scouts can ultimately sell cookies is up to the locals "(each region makes) all decisions on how the cookie program is run. As always, our primary concern is the safety and well-being of the girls we serve." says Kelly Parisi, chief communications officer of the Girl Scouts of the USA.
With adult supervision, as was the case with our girl in Southern California, would you be cool with the girls sitting up a stand near a retail weed shop? Let me know if you're in the vacantly of Peach Street and 2nd in Palisade and spot a table loaded with Girl Scout cookies.
Colorado Girl Scouts cookie sales continue through March 11. Dang, some Caramel DeLites does sound good.
