NEW POST OFFICE RULES AS OF JULY 30TH
As of July 30th, a new rule has gone into effect for packages weighing more that 13 ounces at the Greenville Post Office. Until now, any package under 16 ounces could be affixed with regular first class stamps and mailed from any location. Now, if you plan on using regular first class stamps on mail weighing 13 ounces or more, you must take it to the Post Office and have it collected at the counter. Otherwise, you will have to use specialized meter postage strips, if mailing from any other location besides the Post Office.
Greenville Postmaster Sylvia Brown says that any packages that were not collected at the Post Office, and weigh more than 13 ounces and have regular first class stamps affixed, will be returned to the sender. Those who are unable to make it to the post office, can use the online postage application at www.usps.com.
