SEATTLE — Girl Scouts of Western Washington had to end its annual cookie sale early this year because of the coronavirus.
On Wednesday, Bartell’s announced that it would be the exclusive headquarters for Girl Scout cookies sales in the Puget Sound.
“Even though girls can't be there in person at the stores, when you buy cookies at Bartell's, you're still supporting the girls we serve, and all the money is staying local. We can't thank Bartell's enough for their support,” said Megan Ferland, CEO of Girl Scouts of Western Washington.
Starting this week, Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Lemon-Ups, Trefoils, S'mores, Do-Si-Dos and gluten-free Toffee-tastic cookies will be sold at neighborhood Bartell's locations.
“When we realized there was an opportunity for a partnership with the Girl Scouts of Western Washington, it was an immediate ‘Yes!’ The Girl Scouts’ annual Cookie Sale is their biggest source of funding and having the means to support an iconic, local organization made it an easy decision to join forces.,” said Brent Beebe, SVP of merchandising for Bartell’s.
