Buy stamps now before price rise , says watchdog

The Royal Mail is limiting the number of stamps High Street retailers can purchase.

The move comes ahead of an increase in the price of a first-class stamp to 60p, and second-class from 36p to 50p.

Many retailers are running low on stock as customers buy stamps in bulk ahead of the increase, which takes effect on 30 April.

Robert Hammond, from Consumer Focus, said it was a good idea for people to buy stamps now to save money later.
