If you’ve ever needed to send a package, many people automatically think about heading over to the local post office. But in Korea, one of the more convenient places to get your packages delivered are convenience stores!
Korean convenience stores are always open, found on nearly every street corner and have pretty much everything you need. Even if you need a package delivered (CU, GS25 and Buy the Way convenience stores). That means you don’t have to spend time looking for the closest post office and then wait in long lines. You can walk down your building in your pajama pants, pick up a carton of eggs, some milk, and send your package all at the convenience store!
Look for the Post Box machine and start punching away at the buttons to get started on sending your package. It’s all in Korean, so if you need help, all properly trained convenience store clerks should know how to work the machine. And don’t be afraid to bring that small package you want to send back home; they also do international packages. Yay for sending myself delicious Korean snacks!
