I was asked to purchase those lemon cookies for a relative, and I let it slip my mind unfortunately and I feel terrible for letting them down. Maybe there is one last chance somewhere in Charlotte?

Now is the time they are often out in front of Walmart, at church functions, or other place that allows them to sell their cookies. Keep spreading the word to friends/family that you are on the look out for them, and hopefully someone will spot them.

You can put your zip code in here, and click 'find cookies now', then 'view', and a list will come up.

Girl Scout Cookies - Find Cookies Now!

It looks like they're almost done in Charlotte! If you're on Facebook, putting a plea out there will likely get results. That's how I got ours.

They sell girl scout cookies on Amazon these days. Seems to me like this goes against the original purpose for scouts selling cookies, but they are there if you want them.

you have a familiar posting style frewroad that I can't quite put my finger on. But if I was a betting man I'd wager dollars to doughnuts that we have shared "internet space" before.

The little ladies were out in front of Harbor Freight in Gastonia last weekend. Might be worth a phone call to HF to see if they will be back?

No. I pass stands everywhere I go, get bombarded at the office by well-meaning parents, and always wonder: "With obesity a national health crisis, as well as diabetes, why can't the Girl Scouts find some other means to instill values in their constituents?

I suppose you could just give your friend the donation and suggest she eat her own cookies....

The sale is over, but some troops may still have cookies left. The last official booth sales were last weekend. Savannah Smiles will be the hardest cookies to find around here, because council ran out of them before the sale was over.

I have a box of peanut butter patties that I will happily mail to you. I haven't had GS cookies in years, and they just didn't taste like I remembered. If you want them, they are yours, just pm me your address. I promise I won't stalk you! .
