Go to Girl Scout Summer Camp at Azalea Trails & Skyland Ranch!

They’ll make new friends while making memories in the beauty of Southern California. Applies for any of our partner sessions.

  • Skill-building during the day and home at night! 
  • Hands-on STEAM activities
  • Weekly field trips

Calling all risk-takers! We’re heading east to Utah for an outdoor adventure!

2018 S’Mores and Toffee-tastic Express Update

Hello everyone,

We have heard confirmation from the baker that the S’Mores and Toffee-tastic varieties will be available for pick-up at the warehouse starting at 9am on Wednesday, 2/28. The system is currently open for these two varieties and you have until 9am tomorrow morning (2/27) to place an order for pick-up on Wednesday. After 9am tomorrow, the order will be available for pick-up on Thursday or later.

For those troops whose orders were adjusted this past weekend, we have placed a new planned order for pick-up at 9am on Wednesday that includes the cookies that were adjusted off your order. Even though the order was placed for 9am, this does not mean that you need to be there early to get your cookies. This is just to make sure that the warehouse pulls these cookies early so they are ready for when you do come to pick them up. If you need other cookies besides these two varieties, you can still place your own planned order for the other varieties and the warehouse will have them both ready at the time of pick-up. If you don’t need these cookies, just shoot an email over to customerservice@girlscoutsnv.org to let us know and we will delete any order for your troop that you’d like.

As always, if there are any questions, please email the team at customerservice@girlscoutsnv.org and we’ll be happy to help!

UPDATED: 2018 Reorders After First Weekend

Hello everyone!

Just a friendly reminder that the next available date to pick-up cookies from the cupboard is Tuesday, 2/27. If you would like to pick up cookies then, your order needs to be in (and saved) eBudde no later than 9am tomorrow (2/26).

Also, please make sure that your pending order on the transactions screen in eBudde changes from green (see blow) to grey. If the order looks like this image, you need to click save in the top left corner so the warehouse can see your order.


S’Mores and Toffee-tastic update

We currently believe that S’Mores and Toffee-tastics will be available for pick-up at the warehouse on Wednesday. We are confirming this tomorrow and will post an update here once we know for sure. Once we’ve confirmed, we will contact those folks that had their orders adjusted last week and place replacement orders for them. Once those orders are placed, we will open ordering so anyone can go in and place planned orders for those two varieties and any other varieties they may need. We will also notify everyone here when those two varieties are open.


Thanks!

2/24/18 Cookie Updates

Good Morning GSSNV members!

  • A couple of express updates for all of you. To put some perspective on the booths, we have a total of 127 unique cookie booth sites this weekend-Fri-Sun, with now about 10 reported issues as of this morning, (which are 10 too many!)  Thank you, Vanessa Wagoner, for your expert assistance!
  1. Walmart-Serene OK as of 2/24/18, 9am
  2. Walmart-American Pacific OK, as of 2/24/18, 9am
  3. Walmart-Cheyenne & 215 OK, but we are verifying that all shift managers have information from store manager
  4. Sams-Craig No for some days, but ok for 3/2 and 3/11 (we are contacting                                                                                 troops affected this morning, to relocate to another fabulous location)
  5. Vons OK, Letter available on cookie corner, corporate just added to their calendar which they haven’t done before this am.
  6. Smith’s OK, be sure you have authorization letter (on cookie corner)
  7. Smart & Final, W. Craig Contacting store manager
  8. Centennial YMCA Contacting store manager
  9. 7-11 W. Craig Ok, as of 2/24/18 9:20am
  10. 7-11 Town Center OK, as of 2/24/18 10am; we are sending them follow-up information.
  • The cookie hotline is active, and we are here to answer any booth questions by calling:

Cookie after-hours Hotline

702-359-5229

  • We know that we have questions in the customer service online system, a total of 59 this morning. Brian and Tina are in the office answering those questions and we will not leave today until all of these customer inquiries are responded to by our staff.
  • ACH-1st Withdrawal (35% of initial order and withdrawal will be adjusted down for any digital cookie sales) is this Friday, March 2, 2018. Updates on steps and process will be posted several times throughout the week on member services and cookie corner.
  • PLEASE use and only trust the electronic version of the cookie manual on the website under cookie corner, as the written copy has outdated information since being printed in early January 2018.
  • Damaged Cookies, Troops please let warehouse know how many packages, so they can confirm they can exchange before you drive out to the warehouse to exchange, and for customers or you personally with packages damaged, call 1-800 number on box of cookies.
  • Just a reminder that Tina Cordero, is the Product Sales Manager (customerservice@girlscoutsnv.org) until Hilary returns which we expect sometime in late summer from her surgery and recovery. All of Hilary’s emails are now directed toward Tina, and she is in this weekend answering those and the customer service que along with other members of our staff.
  • Finally, for today, we have an order on the way from CA of 2 designated trucks of cookies, including toffee and s’mores. Last year we sold 300 cases of gluten free cookies, and this year, we are at 4,000 cases and climbing.

The importance of designated trucks is that there are no stops along the way, they come directly from CA to us at Berger.  We expect early this week, and once notified we will have the 8 troops that were shorted on their initial order receive their cookies, and then open for reorders.  We ordered a substantial number of cookies so there should be no further issues.

Let’s continue to support one another as we have over the past few days and see you around this weekend as part of the surprise squad!   Most important, thank you for everything you do and in helping build strong leaders for our future.

Always a sister Girl Scout,

Helen Wronski, Interim CEO

2018 Vons and Wal-Mart Update

Good morning Everyone,

A few of you have called expressing problems with Vons and a few Wal-Marts. We are working with their corporate office to find out why we are not on their corporate calendar as expected, but as we do that, I wanted to provide a copy of the communication with the corporate office that you can take with you to Vons locations to show local managers that we have approval from the corporate office. That letter can be found here.

If there are any issues when you arrive at Vons, please show them this letter. If you are still having issues with Vons or have issues with any other Booth, please put the booth information here and I will contact them personally about this: https://app.smartsheet.com/b/form/aabb38c759644d88b5467330a761a753.

We ask that we use this form to collect booth issues because there is a team of us working this morning and we want to make sure we contact everyone and that we have all of the information we need to resolve these issues for you. We are notified immediately when something is added to this list and we will follow-up as soon as we receive the notification.

Thanks for your help and we fix these issues.
