More in-person sales means more cookies sold for local Girl Scouts this year

Increased in-person sales have led to more cookies sold for local Girl Scouts in 2022.

With cookie sales coming to a close this weekend, Girl Scouts in Arlington and Alexandria are celebrating a solid season of sales.

So far, local Girl Scouts have sold more than 270,000 boxes of cookies. That’s an increase of about 35% from last year, despite an 11% dip in online orders compared to 2020 when sales were mostly all virtual.

Much of the increase can be attributed to more booth and in-person sales, local co-cookie chair Laura Loomis tells ARLnow. She helps oversee sales for Association 60, which encompasses Arlington and Alexandria and is comprised of 60 troops with more than 3,000 girls.

There was also a 26% increase in the number of boxes donated to military services, Loomis notes.

Overall, the D.C. area regional branch of the Girl Scouts sold more than 4 million cookies, according to a press release. This exceeded both last year’s total of 3 million and this year’s stated goal of 3.6 million.

There are still several days left, though, to get those Thin Mints, Tagalongs, Adventurefuls, and Lemon-Ups at ten in-person booths in Arlington County.
