The season of eating those beloved Girl Scout Cookies was extended due to 2014’s wacky weather.
A spokesperson from the Girl Scouts of eastern Iowa and western Illinois said the cookie sale was extended to March 30 because of the “wacky weather this winter.”
“Many Girl Scouts… had a rough time reaching their sales goals due to the frigid temperatures and massive snow storms brought about this winter,” said chief operating officer Nikki Habben. “This winter has been nasty.”
Habben said the cold impacted the cookie booths because fewer people were out shopping and some days it was just too cold to set up a booth. Door-to-door sales also were hindered by the cold.
