DALLAS, TX -- The Locker Network reports that it has completed the installation of an electronic locker system at Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, IL. The venue upgraded its outdated keyed lockers with 304 keyless lockers, installed free of charge through The Locker Network's revenue-share program.

"This new installation is a direct response to the changing needs of our guests," said Shedd Aquarium senior vice-president Meghan Curran. "The new lockers allow us to modernize our experience, while still ensuring security."

Located on the shore of Lake Michigan, Shedd Aquarium is one of the top-attended aquariums in the U.S., showcasing aquatic animals and habitats from all parts of the world. Permanent exhibits include the Abbott Oceanarium, where visitors can go eye-to-eye with beluga whales, dolphins, sea otters, sea lions and penguins; the 90,000-gal. Caribbean Reef; Amazon Rising, an exhibit recreating a year in the life of the Amazon River basin, and the Polar Play Zone, an interactive attraction designed for kids where they can play and discover through hands-on activities.
