W.W. Grainger, Lake Forest, IL, helped support the Chicago Cubs through a safe and successful season at Wrigley Field that required agility and teamwork on and off the field.
According to the Grainger press release, at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Grainger helped to quickly reconfigure Wrigley Field for Summer Camp and the 2020 60-game regular season, so it could be used every day for practice and games in accordance with health and safety guidelines.
Grainger, the official MRO distributor and services partner of the Cubs and Wrigley Field, helped the Cubs conduct virtual safety assessments; procure personal protective equipment, sanitization products, and social distancing materials; and enact measures to help keep employees and customers safe at other areas of the Wrigleyville campus, including the front office, Hotel Zachary and offshoot warehouses.
“As a fellow hometown brand, Grainger is honored to work with the Chicago Cubs and help them solve the unique challenges they faced during these unprecedented times. We are proud to play a key role in helping to keep Wrigley running, the players and crew safe and baseball on the field throughout the season,” said Paige Robbins, Grainger senior VP and chief merchandising, marketing, digital and strategy officer.
