    Le Post Question

    Hey guys, I would like to send an extra pair of shoes ahead to SJPP from Le Puy. I understand in Spain you can send a package to the town post office addressed to yourself and you have maybe a month to pick it up at the post office. Does the Le Post in France work the same way??? Thanks!
