There are many places to buy stamps around the country, including USPS stores. These are often a great choice for people who are sending large volumes of mail, and they can offer competitive prices.

Another option for buying stamps is at grocery stores, pharmacies, and other retail locations. They usually carry booklets of postage stamps, which is a good choice for people who are sending small volumes of mail.

These retailers also carry envelopes, paper, and packaging, which can help you to save even more money on your mail costs. They are a great alternative to USPS stores and have thousands of locations across the country.


As America’s largest pharmacy chain Walgreens is a great place to buy postage stamps. With long business hours and many stores open 24 hours a day they make an excellent alternative to the post office.

They are also an official dealer of the USPS so their prices are usually no different from those at the post office. They sell books of 20 (for $11) and individual stamps if you need less than that.

They also have a variety of stamps, including regular and commemorative postage stamps, international stamps, self-adhesive first-class forever stamps, and more. They also sell envelopes and stationery in the office supplies section of their stores.

Rite Aid

If you’re looking for a convenient place to buy postage stamps, Rite Aid is an excellent option. This pharmacy chain has more than 2500 stores throughout the United States, and you should be able to find one near you.

In addition to stamps, Rite Aid also sells many other items you might need for your home and personal care. These include greeting cards, hair products, self-care items, laundry and cleaning supplies, batteries, gift cards, seasonal goods and more.

Rite Aid sells postage stamps for the same price as you would find them at the USPS. You can purchase them in the form of a book or sheet, which usually contains 20 stamps.

It also offers a variety of other foods, such as sliced bread and doughnuts. Some of these foods are approved for SNAP benefits.

It also has a stamps section, so it’s a good place to go to buy stamps for letters and postcards. They sell Forever stamps and individual stamps. However, it’s best to call the store before you visit to make sure they have them in stock.
