Selling cookies after the sale ends
GSNENY works hard to help make selling cookies a positive experience both for leaders and for Girls. We would all like to end with zero inventory, but unfortunately that doesn’t always happen. Toward the end of each cookie season we get a lot of calls and emails from leaders asking what to do with leftover cookies. After the cookie season officially ends the cookies are yours to sell. Your Girls bought them and can try to do what they can to sell them. GSNENY does not allow official booth sales after the cookie season ends, but you are able to sell them in other ways, through friends and family, for example. You can also donate your cookies or host an unofficial booth sale at a local retirement community or sporting event. Troops are not permitted to ask any Stewarts, department store, chain store, or council sponsored booth location if they can host a cookie sale after the season ends.
All cookies must be sold or donated prior to the expiration date on the boxes and they cannot be held to be sold during the 2021 cookie program.
Please remember that GSNENY and your local Service Unit Cookie Chair have a lot of experience and can help you decide how many cookies you need during the cookie season. You can also use our cookie cupboards to help limit your risk--frequent pickups at the cupboard, only taking what you think you need for the coming days.
