There are few things viewed as time-honored traditions that are related to door-to-door sales. Yet, the annual arrival of the local chapter of Girl Scouts brings a sense of familiarity and can be the doom of your diet planning. As their visitation periods have become more prevalent over the last few decades, the expansion of production of their famous Girl Scout cookies and the level of accessibility that online marketing provides, we prepare for Girl Scouts the same as we do for trick or treaters.
It has been recently discovered though, that upwards of 3 million boxes of Girl Scout cookies will be arriving in Los Angeles over the course of the weekend, giving our young uniformed ladies a lot of product to push. This means that you can look forward to seeing their stations set up outside of retail outlets, on street corners, at events and of course, through their standard door-to-door practice. For those who look forward to the arrival of Girl Scout season, this can be fantastic news and others may want to hide their wallet just in case.
The advent of door-to-door cookie sales has been one of the cornerstones of the Girl Scouts and has come to such a synonymous relationship that we begin to look forward to their visitation each year. For those who have been considering enrolling their young women in the Girl Scouts, this provides a capability to interact with members of the community, to get experience not only in sales but also in public engagement and of course the sense of self-satisfaction that comes with being able to successfully move your product to a variety of individuals across the LA community.
If you are one of millions of individuals across the country who look forward to the arrival of Girl Scout season, being prepared for the high level of visibility that you’ll likely experience as well as having the necessary cash on hand for when you hear the knock on the door can be productive. With such an influx of Girl Scout cookies making their way into the Los Angeles area, you can be sure that at one point or another you will have interaction with these young saleswomen and depending on your level of self-control, you can find yourself as one of their best customers.
We look forward to seeing our local young women out there, not only partaking in an aspect of their enrollment that they seem to enjoy but also having the capability to effectively interact with all members of the Los Angeles community. If you see your local Girl Scouts making their way up your driveway, you have the option of either opening your wallet or keeping the door closed and whichever you choose, hopefully it’s not a decision you come to regret. For the Girl Scouts about to make their journey into the neighborhood, we hope you are wearing comfortable shoes.
