It's that time again: Girl Scouts going door-to-door, selling tasty cookies with sweet smiles.
But those days may soon be over.
While many Girl Scouts still sell cookies house-by-house in their neighborhoods, others have set up booths in local stores, where busy customers can buy a box or two of Thin Mints or Samoas on their way home.
Using an online locator, the Girl Scouts of Central Texas have taken the vendor booths a step further. As part of a pilot program, customers can log on to the council's Web site, type in a ZIP code and find out when and where their favorite cookies are being sold.
