Mike's Parcel Pickup

I've heard that you can get things shipped and mailed at the post office in Bottineau,ND but I'm not 100% sure about this.  
 
There's also Mike's Parcel Pickup south of Emerson in Pembina, ND

Dunseith box

Yes, you can get a box at dunseith, which is super cheap ($35 for six months). Just remember you can't get ups or Purolator packages as it is only usps.  
 
I have had nothing but terrible experiences with Jay, culminating in last week when he forced me to take a package he's had since November and charged me a storage fee simply because the package was in my name (I have a super common last name) and said if I didn't take it, I couldn't have my actual package. Insisted I was the only person he has with that last name even though my sister in law has my identical name, and was just there last week (side note, he gave her one of my private packages last time she was there). After paying $40 for two packages, I will never be back. The time before that, he charged me first package rate for two packages, simply because one was in my maiden name, even though he's known me for years and I had id in both names to prove I was the same person. Even a border officer asked me once if he was in his usual "mood". I like most people, but he is unbelievable.

My boyfriend got parts for one of our tractors sent to Nodak Supply years ago. Just phoned and asked and picked it up 2 days later. Not sure if they still do it, its a bit longer of a drive but can hit up Walmart while there!

.

If you don''t want to make the drive, there are online re-shipping alternatives as well. I''ve used this one and it worked well: https://www.shipito.com/en/  
 
When you factor in the cost and time for the drive the cost comes out about the same I think.
