Charley's Selling Tips!

Many of you know that it is Girl Scout Cookie time. Charley of course is doing her best to set a new personal record this year. She has been doing pretty good as she has sold 236 boxes so far. Saturday was their troop's big booth sale. Since I am the cookie manager for the troop we were there all day. Charley sold cookies from 10:00 am to 6:00 p.m. She was a trooper and certainly outsold everyone in her troop hands down! She was so much fun to watch. She talked people into buying a box for the Food Bank if they mentioned they couldn't eat the cookies. She also talked many people into buying more cookies who had previously bought from others. There were two doors that the girls sold at. One door sold 3 boxes to every 1 box at the other. When we were at the slow door we would set goals to try to reach in half hour increments. She almost met every goal she set, and this was a tough door. She would help older ladies with their carts and make sure customer's carts didn't role away while they were deciding what they wanted. At the end of the day their troop sold 401 boxes of cookies, I have no doubt that Charley sold at least half of those! She was amazing! Uncle James if you are ever in need of anymore salesman, Charley's your girl!
