Business makes monster Girl Guide cookie buy

Boyd Autobody shells out for 816 boxes of cookies from two West Kelowna sisters.

West Kelowna Girl Guides of Canada members are going to have a tough time topping Verity and Carys Drury-Moncrieff’s cookie sales.

Boyd Autobody and Glass purchased 816 boxes of cookies from the sisters on Monday.

“It’s a good buy,” said West Kelowna Boyd Autobody manager Todd Harmeling.

“It helps the young girls out; it helps a lot of people out.”

Customers of Boyd Autobody will be among those who benefit from the purchase. Harmeling said that every customer will receive a complimentary box of cookies.

According to Heather Harrison, marketing coordinator for Boyd Autobody, the company made a similar purchase earlier in the year.

“We had purchased 800 boxes back in April from a little girl in Kelowna. This time we chose to support the West Kelowna division,” said Harrison.

Harrison contacted the Girl Guide leader in West Kelowna and was introduced to the girls from Rose Valley Elementary: Verity is a second year Girl Guide and Carys is a first year Spark.

Harrison said that Boyd Autobody tries to be diverse in its charity efforts; however, the success of dealing with Girl Guides makes her optimistic that they will put in another big purchase in the future.

Harmeling said that the cookies have been well received by his customers.

“Everybody loves them,” he said.
