Introduce girls to new experiences that show them they're capable of more than they ever imagined. Whether you can give a day, a few weeks, or the whole year, it all starts with you. Be the role model she’ll always remember.

Have you heard the news? GSNI is on the move!  
You've heard all the hype about our new Resource Centers, and we can't wait to show you all the great new designs we have in store. Since we're ensuring that we make a good first impression on you at our new locations, we have encountered some delays while retrofitting the new Resource Centers.

We will still be hosting our closing celebrations as scheduled, but the official closing dates and opening dates will be determined in the future. Please note that the Freeport location will still close on May 31, and we have yet to determine an opening date for the new location. We ask customers in that area to either join us at our Rock Falls Resource Center or our Rockford Resource Center, or enjoy the convenience of shopping online.

We'll let you know as soon as we can when we're ready to roll out the welcome mat at our new Resource Centers. We will be hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony for local officials, chambers of commerce, and media shortly after our first day of business at the new locations. A grand opening celebration will be held for all Girl Scout families in late summer/early fall.

Our Barrington location is moving to Lake Zurich!
Last day of business in Barrington - TBD
First day of business in Lake Zurich - TBD

Our Elgin location is moving to South Elgin!
Last day of business in Elgin - June 22
First day of business in South Elgin - TBD

Our location on Business Route 20 West in Freeport is moving to West Avenue in Freeport!
The Freeport Resource Center is now closed. Check back soon for the first day of business at our new location. In the meantime, feel free to shop at the Rock Falls Resource Center, the Rockford Resource Center, or online!
First day of business at Meadows Shopping Center - TBD
