What grocery stores sell stamps? At first glance, this seems like a really easy question to answer. After all, most of us have suddenly remembered at the grocery checkout that we need stamps. If you ask the cashier, they often have some. However, not all grocery stores sell stamps. If you’re tight on time and need to make sure that you get stamps while you’re out, then it’s helpful to have a list handy of where you can get them.
Why You’d Want to Know What Grocery Stores Sell Stamps
Going to the post office can be such a hassle. It’s one of those places that you only go to for a highly specific reason. You’re almost always there just to ship an item, pick up mail, and/or buy stamps. Therefore, it’s easy to put off going to the post office.
On the other hand, you’re always at the grocery store. You go there to pick up groceries, prepared food, flowers, household, items, and more. Therefore, you may sometimes find yourself wondering, “what grocery stores sell stamps?” After all, if you can avoid a trip to the post office by getting stamps at the grocery store, then you can save yourself time.
So, What Grocery Stores Sell Stamps?
Of course, if you’re not in a rush, then the best thing that you can do is to ask your grocery store if they sell stamps. The next time you’re there, you can ask at the cash register or at the customer service desk. Even your small grocery might carry stamps. For example, Le Beau Market in San Francisco carries stamps.
I know for certain that Safeway sells stamps. There is a Safeway location near me. I have purchased stamps there. There are Safeway locations all across the country. Therefore, this is a really convenient place to keep in mind if you want to buy stamps at the grocery store. However, like many grocery stores, they only sell booklets of stamps. Therefore, you’ll have to get twenty stamps, even if you only need one.
Likewise, there is a Whole Foods near me. I have also bought stamps there. They also only sell them by the booklet.
Other Grocery Stores That Sell Stamps
In addition to these stores that I happen to know because I’ve shopped at them in San Francisco, here are other grocery stores that sell stamps:
- Superstores that sell groceries in addition to other items usually sell stamps. For example, you can get stamps at Walmart and Target.
- Pharmacies where you might occasionally pick up snacks and small groceries also sell stamps. Walgreens and CVS are two big examples.

Finding Places to Buy Stamps
Maybe your grocery store doesn’t sell stamps. Or perhaps they’re all out. Or maybe you’re in an unfamiliar location. Regardless of the reason, you may find yourself in the predicament of needing to find a place nearby that sells stamps. That’s when your best bet is to turn to the Store Locator Tool on the USPS website.
Enter your zip code, narrow down the radius of miles within which you want to search, and pull up a convenient list. The list will even tell you if a location sells stamp booklets only as opposed to individual stamps.
If you want to find which grocery stores sell stamps nearby, then use the “refine search” tool. Select “alternate locations to buy stamps.” This gives you a list that includes grocery stores, convenience stores, and the like. Scan the list for a grocery store near you.
