Uncle Marty and friends are taking a little Thanksgiving break, closing Wednesday, 11/25, through Sunday, 11/29. We’ll reopen on Monday, 11/30, rested, ready, and eager for a wonderful holiday shipping season.
Carrier schedules for Thanksgiving are:
DHL: full service on Wednesday; no domestic service on Thursday; full service on Friday
FedEx: full service on Wednesday; no domestic service on Thursday; modified domestic service on Friday and Saturday
USPS: full service on Wednesday; no service on Thursday; full service on Friday and Saturday
Uncle Marty has just been featured in the November issue of FedEx ShipSource®, the official publication of FedEx Authorized ShipCenters®.
FedEx has recognized Marty’s positive impact on the FedEx brand and image through creative marketing displays and ideas at Uncle Marty’s Shipping Office, as well as his work with the popular Marketing with Marty course series that he teaches at Association of Mail & Business Centers (AMBC) events across the country. So FedEx reached out, excited to communicate something fresh to the FedEx network.
We are truly honored for this privilege. Thank you, FedEx, for your amazing support and partnership. Long live purple!
Uncle Marty just returned from a long weekend in Portsmouth, New Hampshire at the Association of Mail & Business Centers’ (AMBC) regional “Work” Shop.
As a volunteer member of the non-profit AMBC Board of Directors, Uncle Marty often travels to industry conferences, conventions, and meetings to network, learn, teach, and train other independent shipping and business center owners and operators.
In Portsmouth, Uncle Marty spoke to a group of over 50 shipping and business center owners, managers, and industry vendors from all across the country. He taught a brand new segment of his popular Marketing with Marty series, Inside Out Marketing 2.0. He also assisted in teaching FasTrac, an intense 8-hour seminar for new store owners.
The weekend was wildly successful. We have lots of new ideas now, so the ever-evolving Uncle Marty’s Shipping Office is about to improve even more!

Our semi-annual FedEx volume review has just given us a two-tier jump on FedEx Express domestic and international services! This significantly increased our discount, making our great rates even better!
We love watching our business grow. Come grow with us and see how we can make your errands easier, your life simpler, and your business better!
Did you know that we are the highest volume DHL Authorized Shipping Center in our region?
As a result of our volume, we are treated very well by DHL and can offer rates that are often below DHL’s published retail rates.
So the next time you need to ship internationally, remember Uncle Marty’s. We’re global shipping specialists!
Uncle Marty’s will be closed on Monday, September 7th, in observance of Labor Day.
DHL, FedEx, and the USPS will have no operations on the holiday.
See you Tuesday!
