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



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!


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!
