SPRINGFIELD — The Postal Service will raise the price of its first-class “forever” postage stamps by 2 cents on Sunday, Jan. 22.
The price of a stamp will go from 47 cents to 49 cents.
The hike was approved by the Postal Regulatory Commission last year.
The price will not change for postcards, for mail to international destinations or for additional ounces for letters.
