Girl Scouts extend cookie sales, hope to hit $3.08 million boxes sold

RALEIGH, N.C. -

The Girls Scouts group based in Raleigh is extending its cookie sales for a week and hoping to reach its goal of $3.08 million boxes sold.

The North Carolina Coastal Pines group said its cookie sales began Jan. 4 and will run through March 9. The group said sales were impacted by the tough weather this winter.

 "Extending the time of the sale will allow troops to host additional booths if needed, and help girls and troops reach their goals for the 2014 Girl Scout Cookie Sale," said Leslie Flood, chief business officer at Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines.

The Coastal Pines includes 1,421 troops, and 1,336 of those troops are selling cookies.

Flood said sales are 1 percent ahead of a year ago.

Girl Scouts across central and eastern North Carolina are selling nine varieties of cookies this sale.  This year, Cranberry Citrus Crisp cookie joins the list, along with traditional favorites like Thin Mints, Peanut Butter Patties and Thanks-A-Lots. Each box is $3.50.

Select girls and troops are piloting a new Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Shortbread cookie which sells for $5 a box.
