Cookie Booth Information

Girls can have fun with the other girls in their troop and learn great retail sales skills by selling cookies in a Girl Scout cookie booth. Booths can be held at local grocery stores, department stores, banks, or after Sunday worship services. Some troops have even set up booths near a fast-food drive-thru. Except for Pick ‘n Save Stores, Festival and Copps in Manitowoc troop leaders and girls pick their own location and make arrangements with the store owner or manager.

How to Order Booth Cookies

Troop cookie sale managers, with the approval of the troop leader, places a cookie booth order with their troop order in the online ordering system eBudde. Troops may incorporate into their booth sale the extra cookies needed to fill full cases and then order additional cookies specifically for the booth sale.

Cookie Booth Sales at Pick’n Save Stores, Festival Food Stores, and the Copps Store in Manitowoc

Specific procedures will be provided to troops each year. In short, these businesses require that dates and times for cookie booths be pre-scheduled by the council. Please do not contact these stores directly to schedule a cookie booth. Each year, you will be given a time period to sign up for Friday/Saturday/Sunday timeslots. Troops may select three timeslots at each of these stores during peak sales periods. After that, vacant time slots can be selected.

Troops wishing to set up booth sales at other than Pick’n Save, Festival, and Copps in Manitowoc may contact the place of business and add the date, time, and location in eBudde so your booth sales can be promoted.
