Girl Scouts Relena, 16, left, and Ruth, 17, pose for a photo in front of a display of Girl Scout cookies at Harmons in Salt Lake City on Friday. Harmons grocery stores across the state are selling thousands of boxes of cookies that went unsold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The cookies will sell at the same price as if they had been purchased from girls at a cookie booth, had the program been able to continue through the end of the cookie season. “We’re really grateful that Harmons is doing this because a lot of troops take on the responsibilities of the cookies, and if we don’t sell them then it comes out of our troop funds to pay for them,” said Cathy Blomquist, leader of Troop 46 in Tooele. Blomquist said her troop, comprised of mostly seniors in high school, planned a trip to Hawaii to commemorate their achievements but are now hoping for a trip to St. George instead when it becomes safe to gather and travel again. The Girl Scouts of Utah had 100,000 boxes of inventory.
