Girl Scouts selling cookies at in-person booths at local Walmart and Sam's Club locations


Annual booth sales will be held March 19 – March 28

LAS VEGAS (March 19, 2021) Beginning this weekend, Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada will sell Girl Scout cookies at in-person cookie booths at local Walmart and Sam’s Club stores. Following strict COVID-19 safety guidelines, local Girl Scout troops will sell the world-famous cookies at “in person” booths for the first time since the start of the global pandemic. In January, the annual cookie sale pivoted to sales via online orders and partnerships with GrubHub and Green Valley Grocery.

“Southern Nevadans are always supportive of our Girl Scouts during the cookie program. This year, more than ever, we are looking for that community support” said Kimberly Trueba, CEO of Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada. “Due to the decrease in COVID-19 cases in our area and following strict safety guidelines, our cookie entrepreneurs are ready to sell all of the favorite cookie varieties.”

Staying consistent with pricing from 2020, Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Do-si-dos, and Savannah Smiles can be purchased for $5 a box. The two specialty flavors Girl Scout S’mores and Toffee-tastics for $6 a box. 100% of the proceeds from each sale will benefit local Girl Scout troops.

Want to support local Girl Scouts but don't want the temptation of extra calories? There's an option to purchase cookies for donation to Delivering with Dignity, a program that delivers high-quality prepared meals directly to the most vulnerable individuals and families in the Las Vegas Valley. Now through March 30, you can also round up your Walmart purchase on walmart.com or in-app transaction to the nearest dollar to benefit local Girl Scouts. Look for the Round Up option at checkout.
