New Shipping Zone in Kenai offers something for everyone!

Kenai residents, visitors and local businesses now have the convenience of a new Shipping Zone (SZ) in the area. SZ is a FedEx Authorized ShipCenter, an Approved Shipper for The US Postal Service and a DHL Authorized Shipping Center, providing a variety of shipping and mailing options, so you can easily access the service that best fits your needs, both for budget and speed. The SZ fully integrated shipping system lets you see exactly when each carrier delivers and what each service cost, no need to spend hours looking up different rates online or calling for quotes. They can tell you exactly what it will cost to pack, insure, and ship your items, including your fresh catch, all in a matter of minutes. SZ has put the word convenience into your shipping and small business needs. From cutting a new key for the one that went overboard to cell phone accessories and computer printing, you will be amazed and all the services provided by Lea Stuber the proprietor of the new Shipping Zone in the strip mall next to Carr’s Safeway in Kenai. “Things were busy from the day we opened three months ago and now we are looking forward to the fishing season and helping people get their catches home or to wherever with ease and friendly service,” Lea told the Dispatch.

According to Stuber she started her SZ for the convenience of residents and visitors to save them time and miles to meet their small business needs. For those who want to avoid long postal lines SZ rents mail boxes for less than the post office, “With our special if you rent a box for a year you get three months free and one month free with a six month rental so it’s cheaper than the post office and while you’re here if you need printing from your computer we can do that or if you need something laminated like a document we can do that quickly and we can actually rent you a computer,” she said. Lea has been in Alaska for the last ten years and moved here from the Philippines the difference in weather and culture don’t bother her she says except when the snow is too deep for her to wear her high heels, “I like working for a living and providing good service for all my customers, that’s why I opened the Shipping Zone,” she said. You can also get passport photos at the Shipping Zone, color or black and white printing, faxing services, all sizes of frozen shipping boxes and even a compete moving kit. They carry office supplies, greeting cards, posters and can make signs and banners. SZ is offering a 15% discount for all those in the military and free photo copies for teachers. SZ is open at the Safeway Center Monday – Friday 8:30am-6:30pm and Saturday 9:00am-5:00pm. For more information call Lea at 283-4900 or log on to their website where can track all your shipments at
