Cub fans only want to store one thing at Wrigley Field other than red-hot baseball – and that’s a World Series pennant! It’s been 107 years since the Cubs have won a World Series.
At StorageMart, sports fans rent storage Chicago units to keep their sporting gear in shape year ’round. Climate controlled space prevents damage from temperature changes, from spring training to the World Series.
