When Do Girl Scout Cookies Go on Sale?

Girl Scouts in the Herndon area are already going door to door selling Girl Scout cookies. Girl Scout cookie sales booths open Feb. 22.

If you get an unexpected knock at the door, you may want to answer it: Girl Scouts in Herndon are going door to door now selling Thin Mints, Tagalongs and other Girl Scout cookies.

Local Girl Scouts were able to sell to friends and family members as early as December, but door-to-door sales did not start until mid-January.

Girl Scouts will be selling cookies at several locations and events throughout Herndon from Feb. 22 through March 24.

Some times, dates and locations for cookie sale booths are already set—enter your ZIP code into this Girl Scouts’ Cookie Locator page to look up cookie sales. Or, download the Girl Scout cookies locator mobile app.

Later this month, Herndon Girl Scouts will be selling cookies at Outback Steakhouse, Giant Food, Worldgate Center and Panera Bread. More cookie sale locations will pop up in March, including at Kmart, Safeway, The Breeze, and the Herndon Town Hall. 

Girl Scout cookies are $4 this year, up from $3.50 per box. Each Girl Scout troop gets to keep 50-cents from every box sold.

The new cookie this year—mango crème—is not available in Virginia.

Just to clarify, cookie sales are managed by regional GS Councils, so some of the info in this article doesn't apply to our local GS Council--Girl Scout Council of the Nation's Capital (GSCNC). GSCNC sells cookies from Little Brownie Bakers, one of two authorized providers of GS Cookies, but the mango creme cookie is being offered by ABC Bakers, the other bakery, which is why we don't have it in our region. Also, cookies in our area were $4 last year, the first increase in several years, and our troop profit is either $.65 or $.70 per box, depending on the reward program the troops choose. Finally, if you'd like to support GS but don't want the cookies, please ask the girls about Gift of Caring, a program through which the troop provides cookies to local charities. Thank you!

Thank you so much for adding this info, Brenda! And thanks for including the Gift of Caring info as well. My niece is selling GS cookies but I don't want the cookies, so that's definitely what I'm doing!
