Thank you to our magnificent customers for making this end-of-semester and graduation season the best one yet! The sidewalks are clearing, the air is warming, and Collegetown is settling down. We’ll begin our summer hours (Monday-Friday, 10-5) on Monday, June 3rd.
Yes, we’re open all weekend and Memorial Day!
Graduation Sunday: 12-5
Memorial Day Monday: 9-6
To the Graduates:
It’s time to say farewell to you, the class of 2013, as you finish your time here as students. We hope it’s not “goodbye,” but rather “so long for now.”
You’ve stood by us as we’ve grown from a little shipping store into one of Collegetown’s favorite destinations. We’ve printed and bound your theses and senior projects, proofed your resumes, and stored your stuff while you’ve been away on break. We’ve helped you pick out the perfect greeting cards for your peeps and loved it when you brought them in to meet us. Now we’re busy shipping your collections all over the world as you leave Ithaca for parts known and unknown.
You’ve recommended us to your friends and written beautiful reviews online. You’ve invited us to visit you in South Africa, Hong Kong, Australia, and Singapore, and we hope to have the opportunity to do such someday. Until then, we hope you’ll continue to follow us on Facebook and, just as other alumni do when they’re back in town, stop back in to see us the next time you visit your alma mater.
We thank you; we’ll miss you. It has been our great pleasure getting to know you and we can’t wait to hear about the exciting adventures your futures hold.
With pallets of boxes freshly delivered and many more on the way, we have what you need! All of our boxes are 1/2 price when you ship and/or store with us (offer valid in May, 2013).
As a reminder, we’re open Saturdays, May 11th, 18th, and 25th, and Sunday, May 26th.
We’ll see you soon at Uncle Marty’s!
We’ll be open special extended hours in May as the semester ends, commencement commences, and our student friends ship out:
Monday through Friday: 10-6
Saturdays (May 11th, 18th, 25th): 12-4
Graduation Sunday (May 26th): 12-4
Please remember to make your storage reservations ASAP to ensure the best spot on our schedule. We’ll see you soon!
It’s April, so naturally we’re already thinking about May. The end of the semester will be here before we know it and, as always, Uncle Marty’s is Collegetown’s best source for shipping your stuff home and/or storing it until you come back to Ithaca.
Please visit unclemartysoffice.com/storage for pertinent information on our fabulous storage rates and easy process. We’re already taking storage reservations and encourage students to make their plans ASAP both to guarantee a spot on our schedule and make your busy May a little less stressful.
We’re here for you and look forward to a wonderful season!
Prepping for Passover? Eager for Easter? Uncle Marty’s is your spring holiday headquarters!
Not only do we have the perfect greeting card for the occasion, we’re also your basket shipping headquarters. We love to see pretty pastel packages this time of year and look forward to helping you find the best option to get your Peeps to your peeps!
Uncle Marty’s has been Collegetown’s source for unique and special greeting cards since we opened our doors in the fall of 2011. We’re pleased to announce a few more brand new card lines in our expanded greeting card section, including Quotable and Carol’s Rose Garden. From frilly to funny and sassy to sappy, we try our best to stock cards perfect for every taste and occasion.
Valentine’s Day is just a week away. You’ll find the perfect greeting card, gift, and best packing and shipping options at Uncle Marty’s! See you soon!
It’s that time of year again. The USPS rate change will take effect on January 27th. As always, Uncle Marty’s is your local USPS Approved Shipper and official Neighborhood Postal Center and, as such, will continue to offer some of the best USPS rates of any retail setting in the area as well as a good variety of postage stamps.
While the face value of a forever stamp will increase by one cent, they remain forever stamps and any that have been purchased prior to the postage increase will remain perfectly valid. We will also soon carry the brand new global forever stamps which will be good for any international letter weighing up to one ounce. The face value of post card stamps will be increasing by one cent, but we’ll have one cent stamps on hand for any old post card stamps that you might need to use up.
Whether you’re just coming in to buy stamps, drop off mail, or ship packages, we love seeing you! Of course, in addition to being an official mail collection point for Collegetown, we’re also a FedEx Authorized ShipCenter and a DHL Authorized Shipping Center and can compare rates and services through all three carriers to find that option that best suits your needs.
