USPS Considering Leasing Out Postal Store Space

or Selling Office Products

Identify opportunities for USPS to leverage its retail infrastructure to generate income by

1) Leasing Postal Store space to companies which sell office supplies and related products/services. 

2) Selling an office supply company’s products in post offices using USPS labor resources.

Comments from PostalReporter reader:
I think this RFI will be controversial.  It is one thing to sell USPS-branded products/services.  It is quite another to sell Office Max/Depot/Staples products and services on postal property.  Would sales tax and property tax be collected?  If not, local and state governments will complain.  Excluded retailers will see it as unfair competition.
