How to get a PO box for packages

Hi. I'm living in Lausanne. I'd like to order packages, but it doesn't work at my building - DPD can't find the address, and in any case I have to wait around all day for them because I've been warned they will walk away if I don't.

So, if I get a PO box, I'm thinking that they'll hold boxes for me behind the counter - is that true? If so, how do I get one? I asked at the Post nearest to me, and from what I could discern they don't have boxes there and I need to find a specific other Post near my address. Should I just ask around? I can't find anything about PO boxes on the post.ch website.

Thanks so much.

I've used it a few times in Zürich, and it worked just fine.

Ah, thank you so much! I asked at another Post office and they were confused and said it wasn't possible. I really need to learn French, fast.

If you go to your local post office they should be able to help open a PO Box, but the biggest post office in town, at St François, will most likely have at least one available to you.
