Mailboxes etc.

A franchise, and most grocery stores provide most of the same services as the Post Office and they can be found in shopping centers throughout Houston.   However,  do be aware that you often do pay more for postage at Mailboxes etc. than going to the post office. But at times it can be more convenient and the extra expense justified.
