Boxing Day had come and gone. Or so we thought.
On Saturday morning, with a object wrongly perplexing to feverishness temperatures in a 30s, cases and cases of Girl Scout cookies were wheeled to vehicles, mostly minivans and SUVs, in a Westgate Towne Centre parking lot.
It was Cookies Now! day.

S’mores debuted in 2017 and was such a hit, a cookie formed on a campfire favorite is back.
One mom pronounced her father already had designated a whole cases of Lemonades as his own. A box costs $48, or $4 per box.
Another mom pronounced that equates to one box a month, if swelling out expenditure is your dietary goal.
And if we cite gluten-free cookies, Trios are coming.
Sales are underneath way, and go by a finish of February.
Somewhere in a area of 50,000 boxes were distributed, with men-types on palm to circle out dollies contained a 12 cases. It wasn’t complicated lifting though puffs of exhale were manifest during trips to and from vehicles.
Nearby, a Mayflower lorry was parked, a cookie bucket unloaded during a day and taken by forklift to a pickup area.
The eventuality valid to be a print op for some moms.
