If you are wondering where can I buy stamps besides the post office, then you should know that there are more than a dozen options. The United States Postal Service or post offices across the country are of course the first place you must consider but you may not be near one. It could be a Sunday and the post office near you may not have a self service kiosk that you can use to buy a stamp. Here is a comprehensive list of the places where you can buy stamps besides the post office, excluding the official site of USPS.
- You can buy stamps at Walmart. The retail chain has a nationwide presence. Most Walmart stores operate twenty four hours a day and seven days a week. You can buy stamps at Walmart on a Sunday or any other day and at any point in time. You are perhaps aware where the nearest Walmart is. If you are on the road or new in town then you can use the store locator of Walmart on its official site to find the nearest location.
- There are many other retail chains where you can buy stamps. You can buy stamps at Target, Costco, Randalls, Kroger and others. It is not just the big box retailers or major chains that sell stamps. You can buy stamps at your neighborhood store but this is not something you can blindly rely on. Not all neighborhood stores sell stamps. Likewise, not all gas stations sell stamps but many across the country do. You would have to physically check out if such establishments sell stamps and this can be a bit of a task. The best option is to go to one of the big box retailers to definitely get the stamps you need. One problem you may face at these stores is the compulsion to buy a book or sheet of stamps. You may not get to buy one stamp. The good news is that these stamps can be used forever. There is no expiry date.
- You can buy stamps at banks. You can enquire if your bank or the one near you has stamps to sell. There are pharmacies that sell stamps but again this is not a guarantee. Major pharmacies such as Walgreens, RiteAid and CVS sell stamps. You can be sure of finding one at any of the locations of these chains. You can also buy stamps online at Amazon.
