One Indiana elementary school is making it much more convenient for people to get their Thin Mints and Tagalongs. On February 2, Butler Lab School #60 is running a Girl Scout cookie drive-thru so customers can buy boxes without leaving their cars.
According to the notice, the scouts will be selling all of the varieties: Thin Mints, Tagalongs, Samoas, Do-si-dos, Trefoils, Savannah Smiles, Toffee-tastic, and S’mores. Each box costs $5.
The drive-thru at Butler Lab School isn’t the first of its kind, either. Similar stands have been popping up all across the country as more and more Girl Scouts step up their cookie-selling strategies.
One such drive-thru was held last March at Jefferson Elementary School in Omaha, Nebraska. During a three-hour time slot, the girls sold 41 boxes to local residents, despite the fact that it was a cold and snowy day.
“The drivers seem to like it because they can just pull in and we deliver to their window,” troop leader Amy Riley told the Omaha World-Herald. “Sometimes it’s easier [for sales] when people don’t have to get out of their cars.”
There was also a cookie drive-thru in Richmond (the first in the entire state of Virginia) that same month, hosted by the Girl Scouts of the Common Wealth of Virginia. The organization’s CEO, Molly Fuller, said that the scouts are encouraged to think of new and innovative ways to boost sales.
“It is about it is about leadership, practicing it today to take you into the future. That’s what supporting Girl Scouts is and when you buy a package of Girl Scout cookies, that’s what you’re doing. You are helping develop leadership in a girl,” Fuller told NBC 12.
