Local Chattanooga Shipping Store Explains that the USPS Will Raise Rates for a Second Time This Year

Chattanooga, TN – With the recent announcement that the USPS will be raising their prices for a second time this year, The Mail Box Store of Chattanooga is informing the public of this change and what it will entail. Although this change will negatively affect some individuals and businesses, the local shipping store is pleased to say that the price change will only be applied to certain services of the USPS.

This second price change of 2021 will take place on August 29. The first raise in rates that the USPS ignited earlier this year affected almost every service offered by the USPS.

Here are the rate changes for the first-class mail items: letters of one ounce will raise from $0.55 to $0.58, postcards will raise from $0.36 to $0.40, flats/large envelopes of one ounce will raise from $1.00 to $1.16, international letters and postcards of one ounce will raise from $1.20 to $1.30, and international flats of one ounce will raise from $2.40 to $2.60.

These are the coming price changes for domestic mail items: certified mail will raise from $3.60 to $3.75, registered mail will raise from $0.85 to $13.75, signature confirmation mail will raise from $3.20 to $3.45, and signature confirmation electronic mail will raise from $2.70 to $2.90.
