Thin Mints, anyone?

From a recent RetailWire discussion about new sales tactics being used by Girl Scout troops in the Twin Cities area…I think it’s a smart move to use ideas like credit card processing and kiosks to raise more money for a great non-profit cause:

I’m not sure whether the new Girl Scouts tactics really threaten the market share of major food retailers, but it is good to see a nonprofit thinking “outside the Thin Mints box” about updating its selling techniques. Most of the methods described in the article (accepting credit cards, mall kiosks) are not exactly new developments but could be rolled out to other regions. The next challenge is to develop e-commerce as well as tactics to sell cookies and other products during the holiday season, not just during the spring.
