WEST SEATTLE WEEKEND: Girl Scout Cookie sales!

10:57 AM: In the mood for cookies? We just received this from Ryan:

You may have already seen them around. Girl Scout cookie sales have begun. This year the girls are allowed to do booth sales again. This Gatewood/Seaview-based little Daisys are selling at Thriftway today until Noon.

Although booth sales have returned, it’s been a really difficult year for the girls to sell cookies. They are getting to learn all about the global supply chain distribution.

Sales for local delivery via the Digital Cookie sites have already been shut down because we can get the supply. We also lost a bunch of cookies in our first delivery was a truck overturned and the cookies were destroyed.

Anybody else with local cookie booths? Let us know!

12:19 PM: Another troop selling right now:

Our girls are selling cookies at the Highland Park Corner Store with some creative advertising! Here until 1 pm!

Angela – Troop 41169

The store’s at 7789 Highland Park Way.

P.S. If you missed the lookup link above, here it is again – use it to see where else Girl Scouts planned to be out this afternoon.

    Maybe the local Girl Scout leaders can quickly provide West Seattle Blog with their consolidated schedule of booth sales in West Seattle, especially supermarkets?  That way more people could plan for purchase rather than relying on luck!  Thank you in advance from a loyal family of Girl Scouts past and present!  Support Girl Scouts!!!

      I included the lookup link, haven’t had time to harvest it yet.

    Asking West Seattle Girl Scout troop leaders to post a consolidated cookie sale schedule here so folks know where and when they will find cookies, such as in a supermarket.Thanks from a lifelong Girl Scout!

    I’ve heard rumors of many last minute cancellations of booth sales due to shortage of product and administration issues.

    I ordered mine in early January from a door to door seller, so maybe this means I’ll receive them soon!

    • miws March 5, 2022 (2:24 pm)

      Justme, I received mine, ordered via a post on Facebook (also in January, (21st), just earlier this week. Hopefully, you will indeed receive yours soon! —Mike

      I just received mine a few days ago from the same Girl Scout I ordered from last year.  The new Adventureful cookies are great, wish I had ordered more than one box.  I understand there’s a limited supply for this new cookie so they may not be available at all booth sales, but I see them in the photo.

  • Angela March 5, 2022 (2:11 pm)

    @justme Many girls got their cookies late (just last weekend) and I know they are working hard to get them delivered ASAP. If you haven’t gotten yours by the end of the weekend- you can reach out to the Scout or Girl Scouts of Western Washington to help track then down.

    I ordered mine in Jan after an email contact from the scout I purchased from last year.  Got them about a week ago. Told her to hit me up next year too.

    True Value tomorrow March 6 at 2pm

    West Seattle thrift way at 4pm on Monday March 7. There is a definite shortage in the first batch we picked up so we don’t have the full spectrum but hope to get more later in the week! Please stop by and support troop 42860! 

    • WSB March 5, 2022 (7:10 pm)

      Thanks for the updates! We’ll include the mentioned cookie sellers in our daily “what’s happening” lists.

    This statement on genetically engineered ingredients used in their cookies is a one important reason that I support Girl Scouts, and love their cookies!!!

    “It is important to note that there is worldwide scientific support for the safety of currently commercialized ingredients derived from GMO agricultural crops. The World Health Organization, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, and the American Medical Association all share this assessment. It is also important to note that in the future, GMO ingredients may offer new, cost-effective alternatives to feeding the world’s growing population.”

    Troop 46817 will be in front of Easy Street during the Farmers market in the Junction starting at noon tomorrow!

    Hello Awesome Girl Scout Supporters and Cookie Lovers!  Leaders can try to keep the community updated on where their troops will be selling but this year has been extremely hard for leaders to plan for.  We’ve had nation-wide cookie shortages and distribution issues.  Supply chain issues, ingredient shortages, weather, accidents, and vanishing shipments have left us all scrambling and hoping that cookies will be coming in soon.   We really have NO idea when this will be and it means we are often having to cancel booths at the last minute because we have no cookies to sell.  So the best way to find out what booths are happening is to check the Booth Connector link above.  That said, most sales happen from 10am-8pm on the weekend and 4-8pm during the week until Sunday 3/20.  In West Seattle the main locations are Safeway (Admiral, Jefferson, Roxbury), QFC (Junction, Westwood), and Thriftway.  You may also luck out at Husky Deli, Easy Street, True Value, and Trader Joes, and Walgreens on 35th.   Many Girl Scouts this year will fall way short of their goals, there just aren’t going to be enough cookies to sell so even if they don’t have your favorite flavor they would still love to tell you about the varieties they do have.  And if those still don’t work for you, you can still support them by donating!  We’re teaching them to roll with the punches but the community love has really helped soften the blow!  Thank you WS!

    My daughter’s troop of 3rd graders will be outside easy street Sunday morning from 10-12! Cash only!

    • Cookie Mom March 6, 2022 (12:18 pm)

      LG raises a good point – many sales are cash only as companies have changed policies making it more difficult for troops to accept credit cards. Most boxes are $5 per box but Toffee Tastics (gluten free) and s’mores are $6 per box this year. Thank you for supporting Girl Scouts!

    I live in the 98104 zip code in Seattle I’m buying some cookies for some members of my church. I want to go around to different locations to buy from different girl scouts and just be a blessing to many instead of just buying all from one. Can someone tell me the different locations where they’re being sold? Are they being sold on the weeknights or weekdays, just on the weekends? Any information would be helpful and if need be you can even text me at 206-636-9785 my name is Lee.

    • WSB March 14, 2022 (7:05 pm)

      Use the lookup in our story to find cookie booths in any zip code, yours included.
