Default P.O. Box

So I am seriously considering opening a PDX P.O. Box so i can recieve Tobacco in the mail, especially with this new contest going on, I really like hookah Hookah, but the HHE is just not doing it for me. So my question is, and i cant find in on the USPS website:

Say i get a small P.O. Box, and the Sahara Smoke box obviously wont fit inside my box, what happens. I am sure its a dumb question, but then again i dont understand why they would offer larger sizes if they will just hold overflow behind the counter.

If they hold it that would rick, only 20 bucks for 6 months, and that would be better than having to rely on my local shops to provide me with the shisha I really wanna try.

Edit. The P.O. Box I found is about 10 min from the Airport walking, so that is awesome!

I think if you get a big package they put a slip in your box and you pick it up from the counter. Some places don't mail to P.O. boxes though.

Ya man, you'd be better off just doin your thing like everybody else. Haha I know it's a pain sometimes when your package isn't there and you have to go out of your way to get it. Ups. Haha I like the fact that they leave it. I have it sent to my grandmas address though cuz she lives in a nicer neighborhood.

ya, Pdx is a little out of the way for a seattle resident. 40 bucks a year so I can get somthing mailled to my house that is totally legal to buy in a shop by my place. really, i should bill christine Gregiore, our governer, the 40 bucks a year for a P.O. box.

you should just pay the local store owner to receive packages for you
i think the law is that tobacco cant be sent to private residences but businesses with the license can receive it

that is the law. At that point though I am spending money for every shipment. It would be cheaper to open a P.O. Box, rather than spend 5 bucks or whatever for every order i make. I fly free and the P.O. box is within walking distance from PDX. I have thought about that though, and I may end up see what I can do on that front before shelling out the money. Maybe they would do it for free, or maybe even start to stock stuff I start ordering. Worth a shot maybe.

a local vendor is in business to make money, if you pay him a little bit to get shipments for you, it could save you the time to fly there and back, plus not everyone ships to a P.O box
also maybe you will develop a relationship with that vendor and he will simply carry the products you want and take good care of you

Yeah, it would be similar to buying firearms online. They ship to a dealer or individual who has an FFL and you pay a minimal fee to "use" their FFL. It works very well for firearms. No reason it shouldn't work for tobacco, too. Smoke happy.

po boxes are a waste of money unless youre a small business or are doing something illegal and dont want people to know your address. hardly anyone ships to them and idk about your POworkers but i get in an argument with them every time in there which is like once a week:/
