NEW: FedEx ID Requirements

Dear Clients,

We’ve just received communication from our partners at FedEx that valid government-issued photo ID will now be required for shipments processed at FedEx Authorized ShipCenters. The address we keep on file for you must match the address on your ID.

We understand this will be an extra step, though we are glad that extra caution is being taken to keep the package stream safe. It’s our duty to comply with this new ID requirement, and we do so hoping for your cooperation.

So, please bring your IDs with you when shipping FedEx. See you soon!

With care,
The Uncle Marty’s Team

Big Changes ‘Round Here


If you’ve been to Uncle Marty’s in the last few days, you’ve notice that we’ve been busy making some big changes!

Over spring break, we hauled around all of our counters and fixtures to rearrange our layout … again. (We tend to do this every year or two. You know, to keep things fresh.) With our new configuration, we’ve added 11 feet to our front service area!

In that new space, we’ve put in a two-stool stainless client workstation and print center, and opened up the very front of the store to allow our private mailbox holders wider access to their mailboxes. Our stainless bench is now front and center, allowing for more seating and doubling as a great place for you to stage your stuff as you bring it into the store to ship.

This new space will also give us much more room this year to fill up with boxes to sell and then outgoing shipments during the busy May move-out season, which we know will be our best season yet … and we’re doing everything we can to gear up for it!

In your last visit or two here, you’ve also likely meet either Gina or Eoghan, our two new team members. We’re so pleased that they’ve joined the Uncle Marty’s family. They’re both still getting their feet wet, but we hope to formally introduce them to you soon!

Here’s to moving forward!

Winter Storm Riley

Once again we find ourselves at the receiving end of warnings like “Destructive Nor’easter Taking Aim” and “Winter Storm Riley to ‘Bomb Out.'”

We’re not sure what tonight and tomorrow will bring, but it does sound like we’ll get quite a bit of snow. If conditions make it so we can’t safely commute in tomorrow, we’ll let you know with a fresh post on and a tweet @unclemartys.

Enjoy the snow!

Valentine’s Day is Wednesday!

We have a great selection of last minute cards and offer overnight and two-day shipping options so you can rest assured that your love gets some love on time.

For two-day shipping, be here by 4pm today as FedEx picks up at 4:30. Otherwise, we can still ship things overnight by 4:30 on Tuesday, for delivery on Valentine’s Day.

The clock is ticking, lovers, but we’re here to make sharing ❤ easier!
