Are you on a quest for Girl Scout Cookies? If you're concerned they'll be difficult to find during the pandemic, don't be. The Girl Scout Cookie Finder App located 144 booths in Grand Junction for the month of February.

When I first heard of the cookie app, it struck me as a quaint feature that might get a little use if lucky. Well, I've been wrong before. After a search this morning, February 2, the app located 144 hits for the month, all within the vicinity of the 81501 area code. This app is a precise piece of equipment that will come in very handy.

In years past, the Girl Scouts would come by the studio. With things being the way they are, the studio is currently closed to the public. Fortunately, we have the app.

The Girl Scout Cookie Finder App is a revelation. It locates the various booths where you can purchase cookies. You can search by zip code, and then narrow your search by distance and date.

For example, these are the hits produced when searching for booths selling cookies during the next four days (February 2 through 5) within a five mile radius of 81501.

It's a good thing cookie sales will be going on all month. Somebody brought four boxes of cookies to the station last week, and they lasted a grand total of about an hour and a half.

Like the Girl Scout website says, "When you make a Girl Scout Cookie purchase, you’re helping the next generation of entrepreneurs get an important taste of what it takes to be successful: teamwork, planning, and a positive outlook." The site adds proceeds from your purchases to stay local.

The Girl Scout Cookie Finder App works like a charm. Put it to good use. You'll be amazed how many locations you'll find close to your home or workplace.
