Mark believes that if a business has a PO Box address instead of a physical one, it ought to be avoided. While I’m aware that this could be an indicator of a situation, many places – such as our own – do not have email shipping and you need to find a PO Box if you would like email. In reality, our company includes a PO Box. That is not our fault – it is the options. In reality it is fairly common. I must disagree with the standards of Mark.
