    Florida BP Connect Features Post Office

    First convenience store partners with postal service.

    ZEPHYRHILLS, Fla. -- Now convenience store customers in Zephyrhills, Fla. can do more than buy snacks and gasoline at the BP Connect. They can stock up on stamps, buy envelopes and mail letters. The U.S. Postal Service's new contract location is the Zephyrhills BP.

    A full line of postal products and services are available including stamps, special services, packaging products and much more. Postal customers may also deposit letter and parcel mail at the contract unit. Customers pay the same rates at postal contract units as they do at traditional post offices, but contract units tend to be open later hours. Hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

    "The addition of the Zephyrhills BP as a postal contract unit expands postal retail convenience," Zephyrhills postmaster Tom Testa said in a news release. "Customers pay our regular scheduled rates on all postal products."

    The postal service has about 6,500 contract units that generate almost $850-million in revenue annually. The contract units are usually operated with other businesses, such as drugstores, grocery stores, card shops, shopping centers, universities, military bases and hospitals.
