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.

(Updated, 2/2/22) Girl Scout cookie sales in Arlington are back in person this year, after going mostly virtual in 2021.

Over the next several weeks, residents will be able to purchase their Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs or the newest flavor, Adventurefuls, at 15 booths across the county, according to the Girl Scouts’ Cookie Finder website. Only four locations were set up in 2021.

Booth sales start this Friday (Feb. 4) and end March 13.

Cookies will continue to be sold online as well, with the treats being shipped or delivered by Girl Scouts. Sales actually started in December, with Scouts selling to family, friends and neighbors both door-to-door and online.

Laura Loomis, part of the team that oversees cookie sales in Arlington and Alexandria, tells ARLnow they’ve already seen a 40% increase in those friends and family sales compared to last year.

She says that cookie sales are truly one of the highlights of the troops’ calendars, a chance for the kids to get out and meet people. The scouts are very excited that sales are mostly back in person this year, she said.

“So much of what the Girl Scouts do is being out in the community,” Loomis says. “It’s much more enjoyable to meet people face to face than to send an email.”

There will be restrictions in place at the booths, Loomis notes, including requiring masks and a limit of two kids and two adults per booth.

In Association 60, which encompasses Arlington and Alexandria, there are about 305 troops and 3,085 kids. The sales are a huge fundraiser for the Girl Scouts, with 85 cents from each box going to the troops.

The D.C. area regional branch of the Girl Scouts, Girl Scouts of Nation’s Capital, has set a goal this year of selling more than 3.6 million cookies, according to a press release. Last year about 3 million cookies were sold.

A list of Arlington booth locations for cookie sales this coming weekend are below.

(Updated 4 p.m.) Since Girl Scout cookie season started, troops in north Arlington have donated 671 boxes to their hometown heroes: the staff at Virginia Hospital Center.

“It’s very local and very personal,” said Dorine Andrews, the Service Unit Manager for the local scouts. “[VHC] is a real institution in Northern Virginia, and we really feel that the healthcare workers are overworked.”

One of the troops — six Glebe Elementary 3rd grade girls of Brownie troop #60229 — harnessed the power of Instagram to sell 1,415 boxes, 395 of which they donated to VHC, she said. The troop with the second-most boxes, #60160, donated 59 boxes.

“None of the other troops have really done what this troop has done in terms of social media,” Andrews said. “It really worked well.”

The third-grade entrepreneurs used Instagram to work around some limitations to the online Girl Scout cookie platform, she said.

“The system works fairly well for buying cookies online, but for any kind of custom donations, it’s very difficult,” Andrews said. “I think these girls and their parents were incredibly creative.”

The cookies will be distributed via a “sunshine cart,” which one employee volunteers to wheel through the hospital, distributing snacks to boost morale, said Hilary Phillips, the executive assistant to the president at Virginia Hospital Center Foundation.

“We are thrilled that our local Girl Scout Service Unit has adopted Virginia Hospital Center as its ‘Hometown Hero,’ collecting more than 650 boxes of cookies to share with our staff,” Phillips said in a statement. “We continue to be grateful for the incredible support we receive from the Arlington Community.”

Phillips said the foundation tries to feed staff who work directly with COVID-19 patients, which works out to about 140 people each shift. Other local organizations have also pitched in.

The Columbia Pike Revitalization Organization has donated thousands of lunches to nurses. Local startup HUNGRY facilitated the donation of 600 meals to VHC in January, in addition to its other local food donation efforts.

But Phillips is looking for more support.

“Now I’m going on local people calling out of goodness of people’s heart,” she said.

Donations can be made by going to the foundation’s donation page and select “Healthy Meals for Clinical Staff by TryHungry.com.” Those who want to loop in a local restaurant through their donations can contact Phillips directly at [email protected]virginiahospitalcenter.com

Those interested in donating cookies can email Andrews at  [email protected].

(Updated at 12:30 p.m.) Girl Scouts have found a half-dozen ways to get their crave-worthy cookies to customers in spite of the pandemic. Here is how to do it.

Starting this week, people can buy cookies online and have them delivered through the Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital chapter. On Friday, troops will set-up booths in at least four locations in Arlington to sell cookies.

That is a dramatic drop-off from last year, when ARLnow counted more than 20 locations.

“I think it has to do with the fact that a lot of folks are not doing the sales this year because of the question of risk,” said Laura Loomis, a local cookie volunteer leader.

Here are the locations and schedules, according to the Girl Scouts’ cookie finder:

  • Virginia Square Metro Station (3600 Fairfax Drive): every Friday from Feb. 5 to March 5.
  • Market Common Clarendon (2801 Clarendon Blvd): every weekend from Sunday, Feb. 7 to Sunday, Feb. 21.
  • Rosslyn Central Place Plaza (1800 N. Lynn Street): Feb. 5, Feb. 11 and March 5
  • Westover Market (5863 Washington Blvd): every Saturday from Feb. 6 to March 6.

All cookie sales end March 14.

“This year we had a decrease, but of course, Girl Scouts have found a way,” said Tygerian Burke, the marketing and communications manager for Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital.

Buying cookies online works like this:

  • Customers can type their zip code into the cookie finder and find local troops selling cookies virtually.
  • When customers click the link corresponding to the troop of their choice, the link will take them to a page with a description of what the sales will go toward and directions for buying the cookies.
  • The cookies can be shipped to the customer’s house or to someone else as a donation.

The Girl Scouts are also having cookies delivered via GrubHub, a promotion that started in the D.C. area on Thursday, Burke said. Drivers can deliver cookies to homes within a 25 minute radius of where a scout or troop is located, which in D.C. traffic, will mean varying distances, she added.

She advised checking social media for Facebook Live promotions of GrubHub deliveries throughout the month-and-a-half of sales.

While the online option has been around for a few years, Loomis said “this is the first year where we’ve seen a growth,” which she attributed to people wishing to minimize exposure to the coronavirus.

Burke said some troops within the council are setting up drive-through locations as well as signs with QR codes linking to their personalized virtual booth pages.

Girl Scouts are selling Thin Mints, Samoas, Trefoils, Do-si-dos and Tagalongs — as well as a new cookie called Lemon-Ups — for $5 a box. Two specialty cookies, S’mores and Toffee-tastics, go for $6 a box.

An event in Clarendon next week invites runners to wash down Girl Scout cookies with whiskey.

Pacers Running, located at 3100 Clarendon Blvd, is hosting a social run around the neighborhood this coming Tuesday (March 5) with some special treats available at the end.

The attraction of the event is nominally a chance for runners to try out ON Running’s “CloudSwift” shoes. But the unusual twist comes after the run is over.

Representatives from Pittsburgh-based distillery Wigle Whiskey will be on hand after the event sampling some of its liquor offerings. And with each new spirit, they’ll recommend a Girl Scout cookie to pair with it.

“It’s an unbeatable combination,” promises a Facebook page describing the event.

The run will start at the Pacers shop at 7 p.m. All running paces are welcome.

About a month ago, Girl Scouts began selling their famous — dieters might call them infamous — cookies in Arlington.

The net revenue raised from Girl Scout cookies funds the organization’s local council and troops, which in turn is used for trips or donated to community projects or causes.

This month Girl Scouts will again be posting up at Metro stations, grocery stores and other high-foot-traffic locales, offering a fix of their seemingly addictive mass-produced baked goods.

Below, after the jump, are some of the times and places places you can grab some Girl Scout cookies in March.

Girl Scout Cookies Are Back

girl-scout-cookiesLovers of treats rejoice: it’s Girl Scout cookie season.

Scouts in sashes will be selling scores of sweets around the county, and it’s already underway. This afternoon, scouts will be posted up at the 1800 N. Oak Street Apartments in Rosslyn from 3:30 to 7:30 p.m., at the Ft. Myer Commissary (523 Carpenter Road) from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m., at the Giant Foods at 3115 Lee Highway, 2501 9th Road S. and 3450 Washington Blvd from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. and at the Metro stations in Courthouse, Virginia Square, Ballston, East Falls Church, Pentagon City and Crystal City during the evening rush hours.

The Girl Scouts will be stationed at various places around the county until Sunday, March 22. That means you have less than a month to buy Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs or any other of the scouts’ cookie options.
