|In 1933, Girl Scouts of Greater Philadelphia Council baked cookies and sold them in the city's|
gas and electric company windows. Just 23 cents per box of 44 cookies, or six boxes for
$1.24 helped girls develop their marketing and business potential and raise funds for their
local Girl Scout council program. In 1934, Greater Philadelphia became the first council to
sell commercially baked cookies.
