                    I just wanted to add that The Ups Store does not charge extra over other UPS counters. They charge the same fee you would find at ups.com. Also although some postal service prices may be cheaper you are paying for a guaranteed, insurable and trackable option. If you add the xtra fee the post office charges for these addional services, the prices are pretty much comparable.

                    I was down in Cambridge on business and I had to ship a package to Italy. I did not know where to go but the hotel recommended The UPS Store. I am glad they did. The service was outstanding. The employee was knowledgeable, engaging and explained all my shipping options. The package arrived on time.

                    Granted, I only had one experience here, but it was horrible, so of course I'm never going back. I shipped a package to China. They gave me three options, all very expensive. Naturally. I opt for the cheapest one, which they say is untrackable. They tell me it's going to arrive in 1 week. Terrific! I don't care if I can track it as long as it gets there in a week. I pay up and walk out.

                    Three weeks later, package hasn't been delivered. I call the store, and I speak to the manager. I tell him my situation, and then he basically starts scolding me for going with the cheapest option, which I only now find out was priority mail with the USPS (they didn't say so at the time of the transaction). Apparently there's nothing they can do - besides yelling at me. Here I am thinking I'm going to chew out these UPS folks and instead I'm getting chewed out by them - and it's the manager, of all people. So basically, what happened was UPS charged twice as much as the USPS, didn't offer any tracking at all (which you would actually get it if you shipped with USPS), and then absolutely washed their hands of the whole criminal act. Great. Well in losing my package, they also lost my business. Would highly recommend to those who like pain and frustration.

                    This place is really convenient because it is located in the business area. However I think this store charges more than other UPS counters. They would take about 15 - 20% more. The good side is they sell boxes, they rent mail box, they even send FedEx although it says UPS store.

                    Like the title says, this is one expensive place to make copies or ship something. I'd recommend going to the post office that is about 5 minutes away also on Massachusetts Avenue. Staff is friendly but they should be considering the prices that this place charges!
