Operated and owned by Singapore Post, Philatelic Store @ GPO SingPost Centre located near Paya Lebar Mrt evokes a sense of nostalgia where you can get to see the history of Singapore through the range of stamps. Not only that, they also offers a comprehensive range of Thematic MyStamp,  souvenirs , Singapore & Foreign Stamps and Philatelic Gifts which are available exclusively in store.


To add on, a colonial-era red pillar posting box has also been restored and mail dropped into the posting box will be postmarked with special date stamp in red ink just like the picture as shown above.
