It isn’t common to find single stamps in retail stores. That’s why in Kmart you’re likely to find rolls that include 10 stamps each or a book that includes 20 stamps. They’re cheaper than single ones. It depends on how many you need. Notice, however, that the roll and the book are likely to cost more from a store than when bought from the post office. 

When purchasing online the research may not show all stamps available. Therefore, you may need to call customer service to ask for the stamps you need and order them directly.

More About Kmart

Kmart stores were originally found by S. S. Kresge. After working as a salesman, Kresge opened his own store in 1897 in Memphis, Tennessee.

He incorporated his own company and started opening more stores in different places. The number of stores had reached 682 in 1940. Yet, the first store to go with the name Kmart was in San Fernando, California in 1962.

Kresge, the company’s founder, died in October 1966. Then in 1977, the company’s name changed from S. S. Kresge to K Mart Corporation. 

As the stores grew during the 80s and the 90s, it started facing some setbacks since 2001. Eventually, a lot of branches are now being closed and continue to close gradually in different cities and states.
