Girl Scouts to open Oswego resource center
Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois plans to open a new resource center at 3425 Orchard Road in Oswego.
The organization has sold its current building at 200 New Bond St. in Sugar Grove and hopes to be operating out of its new location in early 2020.
The new center is part of the organization's ongoing strategy to create Girl Scout locations in the northern Illinois region -- in Freeport, Lake Zurich, Rock Falls, Rockford and South Elgin -- with a modern, vibrant store, meeting space for staff, and increased visibility and convenience for families and volunteers.
"This new location, near the corner of Route 34 and Orchard Road, is near major retailers like Jewel, and offers more than 2,300 square feet for us to effectively serve girls and their families," said GSNI CEO Fiona Cummings.
"We're excited to invest in Oswego, since we've seen how the population is growing, and the community is thriving."
The new center will share space with neighboring retailers, salons, and restaurants.
At the updated, Girl Scout-branded location, members and visitors will be able to visit the Girl Scout store, join or renew their membership, get their questions answered, book activities, and have meetings -- all while running errands and managing their day efficiently.
The organization expects to continue to serve girls and their families and grow its presence and membership by being highly visible, relevant and accessible in the community.
