IMG_3597Marty has just returned from the 2015 Retail Shippers Expo in Henderson, Nevada. The event was truly epic!

IMG_4212During the four-day event, Marty met with industry leaders, vendors, and other store owners and managers from around the country to share ideas, learn about new programs, and work together to make our industry the best that it can be!

Marty had the privilege of teaching a class, Inside Out Marketing, to a room packed with people. The feedback was wonderful! He also assisted in leading the New Owners Seminar, Packing Essentials, and Advanced Packing classes.

As a member of the Board of Directors for the not-for-profit Association of Mail and Business Centers (AMBC), Marty spent the majority of the convention meeting with folks and answering questions. We are all so excited for so many new ideas that were shared, and Marty’s brought many of them back with hopes of rolling out some new programs soon here at Uncle Marty’s Shipping Office!


The semester’s over, the graduates have moved on, but we’re still going strong in Collegetown!

During the summer, we will be open Monday-Friday, 10-5. Regular hours will resume at the end of August.

Thank you, everyone, who made our busy end-of-semester season one of our best yet! We will truly miss our graduating Cornellians, but look forward to seeing you again when you’re back for a visit.

Saturday, May 23rd: 10-4
