COLLEGETOWN | 206A Dryden Road | Ithaca, NY | 607.275.3711 | Monday-Friday 9-6 | Saturday 10-3



Halloween is right around the corner, and we have a great selection of seasonal greeting cards and creepy crawly critters to make the holiday happy!

If you’re shipping Halloween goodies to your friends and family, we’ll see you soon!

As always, costumes are encouraged at Uncle Marty’s.


Uncle Marty’s will be joining Cornellians on fall break, closing Saturday, October 11th.

We’ll reopen on Monday, October 13th (Columbus Day). Though it’s a postal holiday, DHL and FedEx will continue normal operations.

See you soon!


Marty’s article, First Impressions: Your Front Window, was just featured in the October issue of MBC Today!

MBC Today is the leading trade publication for the mail, parcel, and business center industry. Marty writes both occasional features and a regular column in the magazine, but this is the first time we’ve taken over the cover!

So this is pretty cool.

September 1st marked our third anniversary.

In three years, we’ve grown from a little shipping store around the corner into a Collegetown staple.  We’ve made countless friends in the neighborhood, community, and at Cornell and Ithaca College, and are so grateful for your patronage, support, kind recommendations and loyalty.

Now, as we start our fourth year and our business continues to grow, we have big plans.  Stay tuned!


Uncle Marty’s will be closed on Monday, September 1st, Labor Day.  DHL, FedEx, and the USPS all are taking the holiday off with no regular service in the United States.

So, we’ll see you Tuesday!


It’s hard to believe that the fall semester is right around the corner.

As you make plans to return to Ithaca, don’t forget to also make arrangements to collect your summer storage items.  We need a couple of days’ advance notice in order to retrieve your items from our storage areas and have them ready for you to pick up.  If you’d like your items delivered, please schedule those deliveries ASAP.  The delivery schedule is filling up fast!

Summer hours (Monday-Friday, 10-5) will end and regular hours (Monday-Friday, 9-6 | Saturday, 10-3) will resume on August 23rd.

We look forward to seeing you soon!


Our greeting card inventory is always changing.

In fact, we just got a huge shipment of new styles in last week and have our eyes on some other new lines that we think our customers will love.

To make room, we’re clearing out older and tired styles for only 50 cents per card!  

Three full, special racks of clearance greeting cards are awaiting your perusal.  We even have some clearance cards in backstock, if you’re interested in digging.

We hope to see you soon!
