Lee County-- You can get gasoline and mail a package at the same time.

There's a new Post Office on Ledo Road in Lee County.

It's in the same building as this convenience store.

Now, not only can you fill up your tank, you can pick up some stamps or mail out an international letter at the same time. The concept is starting to catch on.

Owner Jimmy Kerfoot says, "The elders that live up the street here, they love it. They have been waiting for the post office to come in. They don't have a long drive, this is convenient to them and they can get in and out quickly."

This USPS site offers everything the bigger post offices do except post office boxes.
