PREPPING FOR THE SEMESTER’S END

2015.04.20 - Cornell Daily SunBelieve it or not, it’s already time to start thinking about the semester’s end.

Uncle Marty’s is Collegetown’s end-of-semester storage and shipping headquarters!

Storage is just $10 per item per month, with complete details at unclemartysoffice.com/storage.

If you’re shipping, our system will compare rates and service for DHL, FedEx, and the USPS all in one screen so you can make the best choice for your needs.

As always, we stock over 50 sizes of sturdy boxes, perfect for storage, shipping, or moving.

See you soon!

NEW CARPET!

IMG_2363We have a brand new carpet and a brand new layout!

After Tuesday’s carpet installation, we’ve been busy rearranging the store to make it flow better.

Our new service counter will make our two workstations much more compatible, our customer work table now has space for more than one person, and our packing and document finishing area has been made much bigger so we can continue to tackle all of the fun printing and shipping projects that people bring us!

Stop in soon and check out our new look!

SPRING HOLIDAYS

It may not seem like spring yet, but we hear–and hope–that it’s right around the corner.

Spring holiday greeting cards–St. Patrick’s Day, Passover, and Easter–are out and ready for your perusal.

We also want to thank all of our amazing customers who have stood by us as we’ve recovered from last week’s flood. We’re still waiting on some recovery work to be completed and some orders of new inventory to arrive, but we’re doing a mighty fine job of getting back into the groove. We very much appreciate all those who have helped, encouraged, and lent their support!

Onward!

WE ARE OPEN!

We are open!

Despite yesterday’s flooding o’ the store, we remain open and encourage you to come and visit.

Things will be a little discombobulated for a while, but service will not be disrupted while we clean, replace carpet, and restock.

We are pleased to report that all of our customers’ shipments were untouched by the water and no delays resulted.

Our customers are our first priority; the rest is just cosmetic.

See you soon!

FLOOD!

We’ve been flooded!

This afternoon, a sprinkler pipe in a back hallway of our building burst and ankle-deep water soaked our store from the back door to the front.

We’d like to thank the Ithaca Fire Department for their immediate response and assistance.

Please pardon our appearance over the next few days and weeks as we dry out, repair, replace, and get back on dry ground. We’ll soon be posting pictures of the progress at facebook.com/unclemartys.

Though disheveled, we’ll remain open.

CHINESE NEW YEAR

Chinese New Year will be celebrated from February 18th through the 24th.

We suggest sending items to China via DHL or FedEx no later than February 11th to ensure delivery before the seven-day festivities limit service in the country.

Happy year of the goat!
