Stamp books aren’t available on store shelves, so if you want to purchase postage stamps at any ShopRite store, all you need to do is ask an agent at the customer service counter or any other staff member and they should be able to help you.
Stamp Prices at ShopRite
Postage stamp books at ShopRite Supermarkets are sold at a bit higher cost than the price you’d normally pay at a U.S. post office.
However, as a retail store chain, ShopRite is open on weekends as well as weekdays, working for longer hours than a conventional post office does.
ShopRite started out as a struggling cooperative founded by 8 members, each owned their independent grocery stores.
That was back in 1940 and since then, the ShopRite franchise has grown into one of the largest retailer-owned chains in the United States with Wakefern Food Corp. as their merchandising and distribution arm.
Today, 50 members comprise the cooperative body, each individually own and run stores and supermarkets under the ShopRite name. Together, Wakefern and ShopRite have more than 50,000 people employed across 6 states of the United States.
Their goal is to provide customers with products of the greatest value at the lowest overall prices, which is possible thanks to their “Volume” buying strategy as well as having all the involved warehousing and transportation completed through Wakefern Food Corporation.
