In 2018, Rob Larson and Mary Kuehn closed Trade Mart and sold the complex to Wasatch Storage Partners of Utah for $1.95 million. Wasatch converted the store into a climate-controlled self-storage facility and operated it under the CubeSmart brand.

Wasatch has now sold the property to Life Storage, so the facility started putting up Life Storage banners this week and plan to change the CubeSmart signage to Life Storage.
