About Postal Annex+

While working as a consultant during retirement, Jack Lentz found a need for occasional access to copy and fax machines, packaging facilities and mail services. Frustrated when he couldn’t find a store that offered the services he needed, Lentz decided to open his own. In 1985, he opened the first PostalAnnex+ location near San Diego, California.
In addition to offering the business services Lentz required, PostalAnnex+ stores rent postal boxes and handle packaging and shipping. Stores also sell greeting cards and office supplies.
