Yes, you can get them at any of the food stores. You can't always get the pretty Christmas ones there, but if you want functional stamps without the post office wait, they'll do!

I also like to just order them from usps.com if I don't need them for a few days. No shipping and they mail 'em right to ya!

Edit: Dh just informed me they charge a dollar now. I could have sworn they were free at one point. Good grief. Still...if you need a lot it's not that bad.

Costco, and you save like 50 cents on $20 worth of stamps.

I know the cashiers at Food Lion have them, because I ran into a cashier last night that had them!

She unfortunately was recounting a tale of how she just sent Christmas cards to Canada, and how awesome it was that Canadian postage cost the same (1 stamp) because "it's just like another State". Facepalm.

I bought Christmas stamps in Food Lion at the service desk a few weeks ago and there was no extra charge.

Hallmark in Brier Creek has a post office set up at the back of the store.

We use the 'Stamps by Mail' -no fee. Just pickup a free mailer from the PO or from your mail carrier. Does not provide a choice of design.

FoodLion should advertise they have Christmas or other special stamps -could have gotten at least one grocery run from us.
