Munchies? Girl Scouts perform their “good deed” for the day.
Well, they’re certainly entrepreneurial.
An industrious group of Girl Scouts sold hundreds of boxes of their signature cookies after setting up shop outside of a Chicago cannabis dispensary over the weekend.
In January, the state of Illinois rang in the New Year on a high note, legalizing the sale of recreational marijuana. On Sunday, youngsters from a local Girl Scout troop cashed in by peddling their famous cookies outside Dispensary33 in the Andersonville neighborhood, reportedly charming customers and employees alike.
“The cookies they’re selling and our clientele, it’s a great match,” Abigail Watkins, marketing and outreach manager for the dispensary, told Book Club Chicago, a local news organization. “As a former Girl Scout, I admire the hustle.”
According to Melissa Soukoup, a leader of a local Brownie Girl Scout troop that sold at the weed shop, many businesses were already reserved for the ever-popular cookie sales by competing troops.
