John and Donnie Kopp try to provide as many conveniences in their convenience store, Kopp’s Kwik Mart, as they can.
So on Nov. 21 they added a post office.
The Kopp’s store is the first Village Post Office (VPO) in Brunswick County—and North Carolina.
“We are 15 miles from the Bolivia Post Office. We’ve got a large development here, River Run, there are a lot of people here—some are seasonal—but we are wide open in the summer,” John Kopp said.
