I usually avoid the grocery stores because they always sell the stamps by the book and I hardly ever mail anything. The postal rates would most surely go up before I could ever use them all! I like to go to the little shipping store and they sell them loose. They're above face value, but I really don't mind paying extra to avoid going to the p.o. Also, some gas stations or convenience stores may carry them. One near me has a little vending machine.

Harris Teeters carry them, but they charge a small service fee.

And I flipped after I checked my receipt Normally I like HT but grrr..

I believe they are the only supermarket charging a fee. I've bought them at other supermarkets and didn't notice a fee.

My old bank BBT used to dispense the sheets right along with your cash at the ATM. I liked that because it was so easy and fit in my wallet
with my bills. Wish State Employees Credit Union would do that.

When you purchase postage stamps, get the ones that don't expire. You can order them from the post office online. Once you have them, even if rates go up (and they will), YOU won't have to pay more as long as you use those stamps you purchased. It's a way to 'lock in' the postage rate. I purchased enough to last myself 3 years (since I rarely mail anything anymore).

They are called "Forever Stamps" and will be valid for a one ounce first class letter forever.

No stamps expire. They are always good for the amount of postage printed on them.
