What's cooler than a Girl Scout selling cookies?
A business-savvy Girl Scout who sets up shop outside a cannabis clinic to rev up her sales skills.
Thirteen-year-old Girl Scout Danielle Lei did brisk business last Monday selling Dulce de Leches and other flavors outside The Green Cross medical marijuana clinic in San Francisco, Mashable reported.
Danielle was able to sell 117 boxes within two hours outside the cannabis clinic -- 37 more than what she sold within the same time frame at a local Safeway the next day, according to Mashable.
"It's no secret that cannabis is an appetite stimulant -- so it's not shocking that a lot of our patients came and purchased cannabis, and then saw the cookies and purchased them," said Holli Bert, a spokesperson for The Green Cross. "But it wasn't just patients, staff members and neighbors also bought the cookies. I personally bought five boxes. It turned out to be a big success."
Bert said that Danielle's mother had contacted The Green Cross to set up the sale outside the store.
"We were happy to have her (Danielle) come -- she is extremely business savvy," Bert said.
Danielle's mother Carol takes her two daughters to different places around San Francisco to sell cookies so that "they can learn about different environments," Mashable reported.
Carol told NBC Bay Area that the family is not doing any interviews.
Green Cross is so happy with the outcome that they have invited Danielle back to their store on Saturday, Feb. 22, from 4 to 6 p.m. for a repeat performance.
The Green Cross posted about Danielle's visit on its Facebook page, including a link to an external poll, which asks people whether Girl Scouts should sell cookies outside legal marijuana shops.
The Girl Scouts of Northern California don't have a problem with this business strategy.
Dana Allen, the organization's marketing and communications director, told Mashable that "the mom decided this was a place she was comfortable with her daughter being at."
"We're not telling people where they can and can't go if it's a legitimate business," she said.
That is inspiring! I love it! You go girl!
When is the field trip to a bath house planned?
This is soooo SanFran.........learn early how to make money off of another person’s affliction. I think her next set up should be in front of Jenny Craig’s.
She’s brilliant. hahahaha
Location location location!
what kind of parent(s) are they?
Parents the understand business?
Yeah, and keep up your affiliation with the biggest murderers of unborn and newly born babies in this country.
And congratulations of the horde of homosexual leaders you have in D.C. The GSA has gone the pathetic way of the Boy Sodomites of America. What a pathetic disgrace!
Bad and immoral parents
Her parents probably work at Planned Parenthood or make porn or something.
Yeah, there’s a logical leap that anyone would make. Anyone who is insane.
Poor personal choices should not be a crime. I love how the there are control freaks on both the left and the right try to use the power of law to enslave people. Extreme sports are not good for your health rather so should skateboarders and skiers be made into criminals? Some people live by sucking the joy out of life by trying to reduce life to work, eat, and sleep.
It would be better if you could find some munchies to sell the stoners that would benefit some conservative group or company.
They were joking about this on the radio the other day. I found it appalling as well.
Great concept; poor execution.
If they weren’t in the business of slaughtering nascent human beings, I’d applaud her ingenuity. Getting money from potheads to kill babies.....dumbing down society and killing those who might help improve it.
Little children raising money for baby killers at a drug shop.
The closest Junior College some 40 miles away set up a branch
campus in my town quite a few years ago. Natural foods folks
later installed a fair sized market complete w/a large deli across
the street. Not my choice of foods for the most part but they do
a monster business. If you know about JCs you know the average
student age is not 19 or 20 but much higher like late 20s or 30s.
These are what I call hippie libs and they spend lots of $$ in
these “Hippie Marts”. If I could I would put up one of these
stores near every JC everywhere. When I become wealthy I would
donate big bucks to conservative causes and laugh at the fools
who are supporting causes they despise.
Western Washington Girl Scout Council issued a statement today that they don’t recommend any of their girls to sell in front of pot shop. Surprisingly, Colorado’s GS Council said the same thing.
If a responsible adult is with the girls and closely supervising them, to quote Hillary “What difference does it make?”
because that wouldn’t be a “responsible” adult
> That is inspiring! I love it! You go girl!
Are you serious? Or liberal or a cannabis user yourself? Your comment doesn’t reflect the typical FR response IME...unless you didn’t read the article first...
Is there a lockstep politically correct FR POV?
Is there a lockstep politically correct FR POV?
No. But there’s definitely a liberal one... make sure you’re wearing your brown shirt though when you do...: )
Shouldn’t the brown shirts be worn by the ones who are policing incorrect opinions?
I think I’ll open taxi stands in front of bars and clubs.....
You wouldn’t dare!!! Filthy capitalist! lol
They are professionals. I’m just a rank amatuer by comparison..
Now THAT is entrepreneurship at its finest! Way to go, kid!
You could probably get by with a nice khaki or desert tan shirt then. You might even pick up some package delivery jobs for a little pocket money. ;^)
Yeah, I agree, but what’s up with the haters on this thread?
“Or liberal or a cannabis user yourself?”
Classic liberal, never used cannabis, any other street drug, or alcohol, and I'm not a hater either.
“Your comment doesnt reflect the typical FR response IME...unless you didnt read the article first...”
Nearly half agree with me, yes I read the article before commenting.
This pisses me off now.
I could swear I saw GSA in front of the grocery store an hour ago and now they’re gone!!!!
I wanted thin mints and lemon cookies.
Going down the street to the other grocery store and see if they’re there
Around here it’s called hunting over a baited field.
Going down the street to the other grocery store and see if theyre there
I hope you find them. Don't need anymore incidents of cookie rage on the streets of America.
Dana Allen, the organization’s marketing and communications director, axed “Where her daughter at?”
And the mother wants the girl to see differently environments. I wonder if she’ll take her to see the “hood”.
maybe she will take her to nudist camps and a Nevada brothel too?
They were at the store down the street.
Our local grocery store no longers allows anyone to solicit in front of their store.
I suggest rickshaws.
Msg rcvd. Guess I just cant believe you’d condone a girlscout selling cookies to drug users knowingly. It just strikes me strange if you’re a conservative, that’s all.
I luv lemon
She could be “selling to drug users” anywhere she sells. Would that also mean I “condone” selling to drug users? All I condone is her freedom to sell cookies whereever she has a right to sell them. That is not the same as “condoning a girlscout selling to drug users”.
