"It is Time to Retire!"

Hello, much appreciated former and current customers, employees, vendors, friends, and family,
It is time to close McCartney’s University Spirit. Not from lack of love for this business nor lack of sales. I have loved running this McCartney family business for over 30 years. I AM READY TO RETIRE! The personal joy and satisfaction for these years have been immense. Our employees, customers, and vendors have always been wonderful, patient, and especially caring when our over 3,200 square foot store was gutted due to our business neighbor’s fire on August 12, 2016.
Many of you know that this is a second-generation business. In 1948, my father, Bill McCartney, began our 75 years of being in the Greek and collegiate business while he studied at SMU after returning from World War II. Then in 1971 he began manufacturing collegiate and Greek jewelry. We sold those products throughout the nation to universities and retail stores for almost 50 years. The Southern Methodist University community has been one our largest supporters for our 75 years and will remain important to my family and me in retirement as over 30 of our family members have attended SMU.
On a personal note, I want to say thank you. Thank you to the SMU community, to the Park Cities community, to my much beloved employees over the last 30 years, to my friends, to family, and to those of you who have become like family. I will miss seeing all of you daily, but I am excited to see where the next chapter of life takes me.
Lots of love, Carolyn McCartney Culbert
