City Tries To Ban Sale of Girl Scouts Cookies From Front Lawn

Instead of canvassing the neighborhood, Abigail and Caitlin Mills of Hazelwood, MO, have for the last six years conducted their annual sale of Girl Scouts cookies from their parents’ front yard.

The duo ran into a snag this year, however, when a neighbor complained to the local authorities about the commotion caused by this Thin Mint commerce.

Citing this complaint and a code against selling products from the home, the city of Hazelwood demanded the girls take down their stand.


The girls’ mother vowed to allow her daughter to continue to sell the cookies from their set up in the lawn, and the standoff was only resolved when a local Reverend tried to make peace by buying out the girls’ remaining merchandise (36 boxes!), and having it distributed to the neighbors.
