Wrigleyville is normally filled with Cubs fans from April to September. During this time, the Cubs shops nearby have hundreds of customers each game day. This year, the COVID-19 pandemic impacted these local businesses since the Cubs games did not allow fans in attendance. Wrigleyville Sports, one of the most popular Cubs stores, continued to keep their store open online and in person, when possible.
