Girl Scouts of Colorado has decided to move the council booth selection dates forward from Monday, January 25, 2021 to Thursday, January 28. See all booth selection round dates listed below.
In previous years, most council booth partners ask Girl Scouts of Colorado to wait until January to confirm booth locations. It’s not unusual to have the majority of our council booth options secured right before the troop booth selection process opens up in eBudde.
However, we have been experiencing delays in confirming council level cookie booth locations such as King Soopers, City Market, Safeway, Walmart, Sam’s Club, and GNC.
We have secured some locations with Walmart, Joann’s, and GNC, but we are still in contract/agreement talks with these locations and are hopeful we will receive additional permissions for more booth locations soon.
Due to the delays in confirming some council locations though, we have made the decision to move the dates of the council booth selection rounds ahead.
Booth selection rounds are open in eBudde from 6 – 11:59 p.m. (MST) on the dates listed below.
Booths must be selected during time slots for each round. They cannot be added by council to a troops’ booth tally between rounds.
- Wednesday, January 27 – S’mores Club Exclusive Booth Pick
- Thursday, January 28– Booth Round 1 – each troop will receive one booth selection.
- Friday, January 29 – Booth Round 2 – each troop will receive two booth selections.
- Monday, February 1 – Booth Round 3 – each troop will have a limit of up to ten booth selections in total.
- Monday, February 8 – Booth Round 4 – each troop will have a limit of up to 20 booth selections, in addition to booths already selected.
My Sales Booths
Local business owners want to support girls throughout this cookie season!
Troops have already secured My Sales booth locations and those locations have been entered and approved in eBudde. If you’re not sure how to make the request for a My Sales Booth and get it approved, talk with your service unit cookie manager (SUCM).
You know which businesses are popular your community! Make the ask for My Sales booth locations of those business owners first.
If the location has great visibility and a large parking lot, ask the business owner if you could set-up a drive-thru booth.
Here’s some suggested My Sales booth locations:
- Outside favorite restaurants and local shops
- Micro-breweries and liquor stores*
- Parks and playgrounds
- School/college parking lots
- Places of worship parking lots
- Business parking lots closed on weekend days (i.e., banks, dentist office)
*Girl Scouts of Colorado allows troop leaders and families to determine the best location for My Sales. All My Sales sites are subject to approval and they will not be denied only on the fact they may be located near an adult-oriented business.
