Where to Buy Stamps in Toronto

Whether you’re a collector or want stamps for postage purposes, you can easily find some outlets in Toronto. You can get your stamps at major chain pharmacies, grocery stores, or ATM machines. 

If you’re wondering where to buy stamps in Toronto, you came to the right place.

Here’s a full guide:

1. Walmart

The best thing about Walmart is the abundance of branches.

In Toronto alone, there are six Walmart stores, from where you can buy your stamps easily.

They mostly only offer booklets, which contain about 20 stamps each

Stamps aren’t always on display. If you don’t find them, you can always ask the sales assistant.

You can easily find a Walmart nearby using the location finder.

2. ATM Machines

ATM machines that sell stamps are a bit scarce in Toronto, but you may get lucky.

Some banks, like Wells Fargo and Key Bank, sell stamps via their ATMs.

Those are easier to deal with than stores, and they’re quicker than visiting a post office and having to stand in a line.

Ask the banks around you if their ATMs sell stamps, and you may find what you’re looking for.

3. Gas Stations

Gas stations in Toronto are open for 24 hours, making them perfect for people who need stamps at any time, even odd hours.

Some stations, like Shell or Petro Canada, will have some booklets of stamps to sell you.

They probably won’t have single stamps, though; those may be at pharmacies.

4. Pharmacies

Major pharmacy chains everywhere sell stamps, whether it’s in the US or Canada.

The good thing about them is that they sometimes sell single stamps and a variety of stamp booklets. 

In Toronto, you can visit any Shoppers branch and get your stamps there.

However, bear in mind that some pharmacies demand weighing your package before selling the stamps, making sure you meet the minimum weight. It’s 2–3 ounces in most pharmacies.

5. Banks

A lot of banks in Canada have outlets that sell postage stamps, the Bank of Canada being the most popular.

If you’re already going to the bank to run an errand, grab some stamps on your way out. Some banks even sell single stamps as the post office does.

6. Online Stores

No thanks to the Covid situation, going to some stores may be out of the question for safety purposes.

In some cases, it’s not even an option, and that’s when you resort to online stores.

You can order some stamps online, on Amazon, for example, and save yourself the hassle of going to the store or the pharmacy.

There are some other options as well, such as retail websites and USPS’s website.
