Allie Shroyer is a first-grader who decided to make a sales pitch this year, virtually, when it came to selling her Girl Scout Cookies and the results were, well, adorable.
Allie was quick to woo over many of her neighbors in her Scottsdale, Arizona, community after she recorded on a doorbell security camera a very enticing sales pitch for her cookies.
“Hi, I’m Allie. Would you like to buy some Girl Scout cookies?” Allie can be heard saying in the video: “Would you like one? Or two? Or three or four or five?”
“What’s your favorite color? Because the boxes are colors and maybe you can get a box in that color,” she (adorably) adds.
Allie’s mom, Kristen Shroyer, said they first recorded the first-grader at their own front door as a safety precaution due to COVID-19.
“I knew she wouldn’t be able to go door-to-door, so we thought the next best thing was to record a sales pitch at the door,” Kristen reveals.
“It’s important to us that she still learns the skills she’d get from going door to door versus her mom just sending out a link,” Kristen adds. “She had no prep. We just reminded her of the price of the boxes, and told her to give us her best sales pitch!”
Kristen then posted the video to Facebook and it quickly took off!
“Her sales pitch was so successful that she sold over 200 boxes in the first 24 hours,” Kristen shared. “We’re going to pick up all the cookies and start delivering them next week.”
And while Allie has been busy collecting hundreds of sales — she says the process hasn’t been without its challenges.
“It’s kind of been harder because we would sell cookies and ring doorbells with real people, but now during coronavirus, it’s like we’re doing interviews on the doorbells,” Allie explained.
Allie has so far made 560 sales and still has most of her cookies available for purchase.
