COLLEGETOWN | 206A Dryden Road | Ithaca, NY | 607.275.3711 | Summer Hours: Monday-Friday 10-5



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!


Uncle Marty’s will be closed on Friday, July 4th.

DHL, FedEx, and the USPS will also be celebrating Independence Day, and have no operations on the holiday.

Enjoy the fireworks!


Well, graduation is over and the end-of-semester rush is winding down.

We have big plans for this summer, and hope to use the quieter time in Collegetown to get some big projects done at the store.  Our summer hours have now begun and will continue through August: Monday-Friday, 10-5.

To our friends that have graduated and left Ithaca for now, we will miss you!  Thank you for your patronage, your loyalty, your kind recommendations, and your friendship.  We wish you all the best!

To our friends that will be back next semester, we hope you’ll have a splendid summer and come back in the fall ready to rock!


Graduation weekend is upon us.  We’ll be extending our hours to make it easier for everyone to ship and/or store their stuff.

Saturday, May 24th: 10am – 4pm

Sunday, May 25th (Graduation Day): 12pm – 4pm

Monday, May 26th (Memorial Day): 9am – 6pm

Congratulations to all of the Cornell University and Ithaca College graduates!  We’ll miss you!

P.S. Don’t forget, we have the best greeting card selection in Collegetown, including many wonderful graduation designs!


The semester is quickly winding down.  As you finalize your plans for this summer and beyond, don’t forget to consider how you’ll get your stuff to your next destination or where you’re going to store it safely until you return to Ithaca.

Our storage rates start at just $10/month.  We have a very simple rate structure with an established, trusted, year-round Collegetown location.  Full details can be found here.

We’re always happy to quote shipping options to help you make the best choice for your needs and budget.  Our software compares DHL, FedEx Express, FedEx Ground, and the USPS … all in one screen.  

We carry over 50 sizes of corrugated boxes, all rated for shipping, but also perfect for moving and storage.  We have all of the tape and packing supplies you could ever possibly need, too!

So, remember Uncle Marty’s for all of your end-of-semester needs!  We strive to provide the best service possible in a fun, friendly atmosphere.  Come and see!


Spring holidays are just around the corner, and lots of fluffy bunnies, Peeps, and baskets of goodies are being shipped to our customers’ contacts all over the world (along with the perfect greeting card from our fresh, wide selection!)  As a reminder, Passover begins at sundown on Monday, April 14th.  Easter is Sunday, April 20th.

DHL, FedEx, and the USPS will be following their normal everyday schedule through the holidays, including on Good Friday, April 18th.  We will also be open as normal on Good Friday, however we plan to be closed on Saturday, April 19th.

Happy spring!
