When do Girl Scout cookies go on sale?

Local News

Girl Scout entrepreneurs across the U.S. are back with a hybrid selling model that incorporates innovative methods of online ordering and the return of in-person selling. Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, Girl Scouts continue to quickly and cleverly adapt their selling methods to replace the iconic, in-person cookie booths with new, innovative options. For the 2022 season, councils are monitoring local data and mandates and are prepared for a successful season of cookie selling, whether digitally or in-person. (Girl Scouts of the USA)

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD)- The Girl Scouts of Eastern South Carolina kick off the cookie season on Saturday.

The organization estimates that girls in the 26-county council will sell approximately 450,000 boxes of Girl Scout cookies this year alone. In 2021, Girl Scouts in the Tri-county council averaged 448 boxes sold per girl, and girls who sold over 4,000 boxes were rewarded with a Bahamas cruise.
