As the winter starts to thaw, stands hawking Girl Scout cookies are starting to crop up nationwide. But rather than randomly stumbling on them, a new app can help Restonians with a sweet tooth track their dealers.
Your best bet for cookies today (Monday) will be Troop 524 setting up outside the Giant at 2425 Centreville Road in Herndon from 4-6 p.m.
More options throughout the area start showing up later in the week. On Wednesday and Thursday, Girl Scouts will be selling cookies at:
- Wiehle-Reston East (1862 Wiehle Ave) from 4-6 p.m.
- Lucia’s Italian Ristorante (2531 John Milton Drive) from 4-6 p.m.
- Safeway (11120 South Lakes Drive) from 5-6:30 p.m.
On Friday, there are more than 20 locations within a five-mile radius of the Reston Town Center scheduled to be vending Girl Scout cookies. Keep an eye on the app or the online tracker to find one near you.

The SunTrust branch inside the Safeway at Hunters Woods Plaza recently closed.
The branch at 2304 Hunters Woods Plaza shut its doors on Tuesday, Jan. 29, Hugh Suhr, a spokesman for SunTrust, told Reston Now.
The closure is unrelated to the recent announcement that BB&T will buy SunTrust Banks for about $28 billion, Suhr said.
While the spokesman did not confirm that the branch was getting demolished, a torn apart space and posted permit indicate just that.
Locals can find nearby SunTrust locations at Plaza America, South Lakes and the Safeway in Herndon.
Hundreds of Reston homes got a piece of direct mail last week that piqued curiosity.
Safeway announced on the card that it is offering incentives for transferring prescriptions to its store at 12197 Sunset Hills Rd. in Reston.
There is no Safeway at that address. That’s the address of Target.
That was a cause of concern for some residents, several of whom contacted Reston Now.
“Is Target doing OK?” one asked.
Target is doing fine. The Reston Target is not on the list of a handful of U.S. stores that are slated to be closed by the company. There are Safeway locations at South Lakes Village Center and Hunter Woods Village Center, as well as on Elden Street in Herndon, with no immediate plans for new ones, Safeway spokesman Craig Muckle said.
Muckle said the Safeway flyer contained a printing error.
