Bad Retail Economy Strikes Holy Name Cathedral
The mother church for millions of Chicagoland Catholics is not immune to the ravages of the bad economy. Holy Name Books and Gifts is closing its doors. The announcement was made to parishioners on Saturday night (January 30, 2009).
The store will only be open limited hours and only on weekends through the end of February. After that the owners plan to leave the area in search of a quieter life.
Naturally, merchandise is being discounted to clear out the inventory.
