|Mandel Brothers Advertisement in New World, 1934
From the perspective of the secular world, one effect of religious practices and identities has been to define potential markets. Mandel Brothers, a downtown department store, took out a full-page ad in a 1934 publication of the Archdiocese of Chicago to announce the existence of private shopping accommodations for nuns. The practical needs of diverse faiths in Chicago have supported religious supply stores, bookstores, architects, stained glass artists, specialized sculptors and painters, and furniture suppliers.
