Why was my troop chosen to apply for this opportunity?
All troops that registered five or more girls (or 100 percent of girls for troops smaller than five girls) for the 2018 Girl Scout year by May 15, 2017 are being offered the opportunity to apply to host a booth.
How do I apply for my troop to host a booth?
If you meet the criteria, you will receive an email that is being sent out by noon on May 17. You will be asked to enter your troop's information and must agree to following the guidelines listed in the email. Troops must respond by May 21 to be entered. Please be sure to check you spam folders if you meet the criteria, but have not received an email.
How will troops be chosen?
Troops who indicate interest and agree to following the guidelines listed will be chosen at random to participate in a Girl Scout Cookie Booth Pop Up.
How will our troop know if we've been chosen?
Troops chosen to participate will be notified by Tuesday, May 23, 2017.
How do we get the cookies?
Tagalongs, Thin Mints and Samoas will be available for this opportunity. All troops chosen to participate will be given 20 cases of cookies to sell at their 4-hour booth. Troops may pick up their cases from the Girl Scout Service Center between May 29 and June 3 during the following hours:
- Tuesday, May 30, 9 am-7 pm
- Wednesday, May 31, 9 am-7 pm
- Thursday, June 1, 9 am-4:30 pm
- Friday, June 2, 9 am-4:30 pm
- Saturday, June 3, 10 am-2 pm
What happens to the unsold cookies?
Each troop accepts financial responsibility for all 20 cases. Upon return of unsold product, troops will only be responsible for the money equaling the number of packages sold by case. Opened cases will not be returnable. All cases that can be returned must be factory sealed, and must be returned by June 9.
When will the pop up booths be held?
All pop ups will be held on Saturday, June 3. Each location will have two booth slots: 8 am-noon and noon-4 pm. Sales benefiting the USO of Missouri through Troop to Troop can be accepted, and Square card readers will be available.
