Conveniently located in the heart of Collegetown, Uncle Marty’s is proud to be part of Ithaca’s small business community. We participate in both The 3/50 Project and Shop Small, and are founding members of the Collegetown Small Business Alliance, working with our neighbors to make our community better.

Certified by the Retail Shipping Institute as an Advanced Packing Specialist, Global Shipping Specialist, Commercial Mail Receiving Agent, and Freight Shipping Specialist, Marty has over 25 years of experience in the industry. He even carries a Master of Retail Shipping Management degree!

He participates in multiple industry forums, is a regular columnist and feature writer for MBC Today, the industry’s leading publication, teaches certified packing, shipping, marketing, and new owner training courses at national and regional events, mentors other store owners, and is honored to serve as Secretary on the Board of Directors for the Association of Mail and Business Centers (AMBC).CertStkr (1)

In February of 2016, we were honored to become one of the first stores in the country to be recognized as an AMBC Certified Gold Store, exceeding the highest industry standards to join an elite few independent shipping and business centers across the country bearing gold status.

Our customers are our friends, our advocates, and our top priority, and we show our gratitude with personal, professional, outstanding, and consistent service. We’re thrilled to be the trusted shipper and printer for many Cornell University and Ithaca College departments and student organizations, as well as many local businesses and community groups.

    Can you send me an estimate of the cost of shipping a half dozen bagels from Collegetown Bagels to Chestertown MD? They told me that overnight is best. Which service do you use for this kind of shipping? Thanks in advance for your attention to this matter.

    • Hi, Richard. We’re sending you an email now with an estimate. For overnight, we generally use FedEx Express Priority or FedEx Express Economy services, though we always compare everything to make sure we find the best deal for you needs.
