Postal Connections Opens Franchise in Viera  

May 04, 2022

MELBOURNE, Fla. – Postal Connections®, one of the nation’s premier providers of retail packaging, shipping, mail receiving and eBay customer-sales support, announced today the opening of a new service center in Melbourne, Florida located at 8530 N Wickham Rd suite 112, situated just off the intersection of State Highway 95, in the mall anchored by Walmart. The new, family-operated service center will become the second Postal Connections in East Central Florida, as well as the first location for owners Bhavin and Shraddha Patel.

“This new service center will provide so many conveniences and friendly care for local residents and businesses with time-saving, personalized attention to meet their personal and professional needs,” said Bhavin Patel. “Whether to utilize our pack and ship services, ecommerce drop-offs & pickups, or use a private mailbox to operate a business, Postal Connections will be a one-stop shop to meet the community’s needs.”

On Friday, April 22, the Postal Connections/iSOLD It service center opened for business in the community. The husband and wife are leading the charge as owner operators of the location. The Patel’s are excited to bring their valuable work experience and knowledge to the service center. Bhavin most recently worked as a manager for a shipping and receiving store locally in Melbourne, and Shraddha has held roles in customer service for many years.

Melbourne’s Postal Connections service center offers printing, notary services, passport photos, fax sending & receiving, digital fingerprinting, lamination and binding, shredding services and virtual mailbox service with email notification and forwarding when mail arrives. Customers, located anywhere, can decide if mail should be held, opened and scanned to send them or discarded.

The location also features iSOLD It®, a unique online sales support service for people who want to turn items into cash. The service offers free expert advice on value, pricing and online retail strategies. Many are uncomfortable dealing with strangers online, have concerns about computer hackers and just don’t have the time to do packaging shipping and manage potential returns. There are no fees due until an item sells, and the listing is good for 30 days. If the item doesn’t sell after 30-days, there is no charge and customers can either pick up their item, relist it or have it donated to charity.

Headquartered in Frisco, Texas, Postal Connections/iSOLD It has established itself as a leading franchise and provider of an innovative array of business and personal service centers. It offers access to U.S. Postal products, DHL, and accepts drop off ecommerce returns, along with receiving from all carriers.

“Our service centers make life easier with choices of all carriers for the everyday residents and business owners especially now where labor and service are hard to find. Bhavin and Shraddha are the perfect people to carry out our operating values,” said Fred Morache, COO of Postal Connections. “Today’s ecommerce brings us wonderful products at affordable prices, yet people appear to be starved for customized services when tasks are time consuming or they simply want someone else do it.”

There are 44 Postal Connections/iSOLD It franchise service centers in 21 states across the United States. The retail business model is awarding franchise opportunities to qualified individuals who share the company’s commitment to owner/operator involvement in the business and who will be dedicated to superior customer service.
