Looking for an easy, convenient option? Consider getting a mailbox at The UPS Store.

  • Your local The UPS Store location will accept packages from all carriers — that includes FedEx and the U.S. Postal Service.
  • The UPS Store staff will sign for your packages so you’ll never miss a delivery.
  • You can opt to receive text or e-mail notification when you have a package waiting, eliminating unnecessary trips.
  • If sending received items off to family and friends, handle your outbound shipping on the same errand.
  • Out of town? The UPS Store will hold your packages for you or forward them to you.
  • There’s over 4,300 The UPS Store locations.

How’s that for logistics?

Happy shopping … and happy shipping!
