Girl Scouts to use self storage for on-site sale

How many boxes of Girl Scout Cookies can fit into a self storage unit? Troop 346 and 475 of Chicago, Illinois, hope to find out when they host a massive sale this weekend at a nearby storage facility.

Troop Leader Camille Allen approached the owners of the facility about helping the Girl Scouts raise money by selling the famous cookies. The owners thought it was a great idea and offered up some containers for the girls to use. They also emailed tenants at the facility, urging them to come by and pick up some cookies. Advertisements for the big sale have also been placed in local publications.

The Girl Scouts will take over the units this weekend for several hours, storing the boxes of cookies inside and selling them right then and there. Both troops are looking to fund trips with the money raised – Troop 346 wants to visit the state capital of Springfield, while 475 hopes to go to Mammoth Cave in Kentucky.

Business owners may want to think about creative ways to use their own storage units. Containers can be easily converted into small business storage and serve as an affordable way to get some extra room without paying exorbitant prices.
