Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida

Announcing Our New Broward County Retail Store Location
We are excited to announce that GSSEF has secured a 7-year lease for a new  retail store location at the Shoppes on University. This retail plaza is located at 7401 NW 57th Street - Suite 7413, on the corner of University Drive and Commercial Boulevard. It is easily accessible from the Turnpike (2.7 miles west from Exit 62) and Sawgrass Expressway/SR-869 (2.5 miles east from Exit 3). This initiative demonstrates our Council's commitment to the membership in Broward County and surrounding communities.

Now that we have a location there is still lots of work to do! The custom build-out for the retail store will take some time and includes things like signage, flooring and wall coverings, plus electrical and plumbing needs, phones and technology and all the permits and licenses needed to do the work. We anticipate a Grand Opening this summer and will be sharing updates along the way!
