For those odd times when you are in desperate need of a stamp, your first impulse might not be to drive to your local grocery store. However, Publix grocery stores are here to change your mind.
Every Publix grocery store location offers stamps, cards, and office supplies for your basic postage needs. With convenient locations throughout the seven southeastern states (open extended hours seven days a week), Publix can be a great place to stop when you’re looking for a stamp.
Does Publix Sell Postage Stamps?
Yes! All Publix grocery stores sell books of 20 First Class Forever stamps at the checkout registers. First Class Forever stamps provide enough postage for a 1-ounce standard letter. Because they are Forever Stamps, they won’t decrease in value as postage prices rise (for more information, see our Guide on First Class Postage).
Buying Stamps at Publix
Publix Super Markets, Inc., commonly known as Publix, is an American supermarket chain. Publix currently has 1,244 locations across the seven southeastern United States, including Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia. Publix grocery stores are typically open from 7:00am to 10:00pm, though store hours can vary based on location.
Stamps can typically be purchased at the register during checkout. While most stores keep the stamps at the register, some of the larger Publix locations may sell stamps from the Customer Service Desk instead.
Surprisingly, one of the most significant benefits of purchasing stamps at Publix is access to their produce section (despite just how awkward that sounds). Whenever mailing a letter or package, the cost of postage is dependent on the weight of the parcel. Therefore, if you are mailing a heavy envelope, you may need to use more than one stamp. At Publix, you can use the scales in the produce section to weigh your envelope, and then checkout personnel can help you determine how many stamps are required.
What is the Cost of Stamps at Publix?
Publix sells postage stamps for the same price offered at United States Post Offices. Because Publix sells its stamps in booklets, you can actually save money by purchasing a book at Publix instead of a single stamp elsewhere.
For example, the price for a book of 20 First Class Forever stamps is currently $9.80 (plus tax). With a current value of $0.55 per stamp, buying the book of stamps (compared to a single stamp) offers a savings of $1.20. Therefore, if you use stamps semi-regularly, purchasing the book can be an excellent investment.
