As quite a large state the Post Offices throughout South Carolina can often be some distances apart, however this is not often a problem due to the foresight of the USPS who have initiated affiliated members to extend their services to the public. Banks, retail outlets, Walmart Stores, CVS retailers, pharmacies, bookstores, grocers and many more such businesses have all agreed to serve the public if they are looking for postal services.
Postage stamps, first day covers, express mail and many other services are often offered by most of these affiliated outlets to ensure that the public has access to services offered by the USPS throughout the state.
