Retail Service Equipment: Holiday Knits Reminders

Here are some notes about retail service equipment to keep in mind for the holidays:

  • Traditional vending machines (PCM 1625B and PBSM 624s) will sell the Holiday Knits booklets — but this is not automatic. Each facility with these machines will have to order stock. Stock is available on October 25, 2007.
  • The Automated Postal Centers (APCs) will get an automatic Holiday Knits sheetlet shipment based on last year’s 30-day sell-through.
  • Initial Holiday Knits sheetlets stock is not ordered from the Stamp Distribution Office (SDO). SDOs will have limited reorder stock available.
  • Holiday Knits stock is not put into the APC until November 23, 2007. The APC is to sell the stock until it is completely sold out. Once the Holiday Knits sheetlets are sold out, the Forever Stamp sheetlet is put back into the APC.
