Girl Scout cookies now available for purchase online in select markets

The Girl Scouts of America annual cookie sale campaign is underway.

But this year, in certain markets, customers will now have the opportunity to order and receive their favorite cookies from an online order.

For the past 100 years, the cookies have been sold by canvasing neighborhoods, standing outside supermarkets, or giving their parents a sign-up sheet to pass around their workplace.

It was mostly the young scouts themselves who pitched the idea to Girl Scout leaders to expand their operation online.

Online purchases are not available in Utah this year. However, by next year, the Girl Scouts of America will likely be rolling out the campaign nationwide.
