One consequence of moving to Village Post Offices is that collectors may not be able to purchase all of the new issues at these offices. If you want the new issues, you’ll have to drive to a larger post office. Or you can order them online.

These offices in local stores aren’t going to have racks of stamps with large selections to buy from. They’re going to stock one, or maybe a few, different designs of Forever stamps. They’re going to keep a couple hundred dollars of postage in their little safe, or whatever they need to meet local demand. Getting the latest issues from the USPS isn’t going to be important for them.

Some store owners may be cooperative and order new issues. I bet most will have a few designs to choose from and that’s it. If you want the latest new issues from the local post office, you’re probably going to have to find a new way of getting them.
