Girl Scout cookie sales go virtual

The 2021 Girl Scout Cookie season is going virtual.

The Girls Scouts of New Mexico Trails announced that Scouts won’t be setting up booths outside grocery stores or knocking on doors to sell their beloved treats. Instead, starting Monday, they’ll set up drive-up booths in commercial parking lots and work with GrubHub to provide contactless delivery, according to a news release.

Cookies can be ordered directly from a local Girl Scout troop by entering your ZIP code into the Cookie Finder at NMGirlScouts.org, or by sending the word “cookies” to 59618.

The sweets can be delivered in the Albuquerque area starting Feb. 20 through the GrubHub app. Girl Scouts will package the cookies and hand them to the driver, who will then leave them at the customer’s door.

“Our Girl Scouts are finding really creative ways to meet their goals,” Girl Scouts of New Mexico CEO Rebecca Latham said in a news release. “By mirroring some of the tactics they’ve seen small businesses use in the past year, they already know that contactless delivery and curbside pickup are the best ways to ensure a safe cookie season.”
