As Lent approaches, Catholic shoppers are going into high-gear, looking to buy religious items for themselves and others. Lent and the sacramental season which follows, is the largest shopping season of the year for Catholic Online outside of Christmas.
Catholics like to shop during this time of year for sacramental gifts, including rosaries, icons, and wedding gifts.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Whether it's rosaries, devotional icons, or wedding bands for the summer, Catholics like to shop. Unfortunately, a common challenge for Catholics is finding where to shop.
While most communities have Catholic stores, shoppers tend to find limited selection and are locked into paying a single price, or worse, having to choose to visit a secular store for their gifts. Thankfully, the internet is making shopping as easy as a Google search.
Catholic Online has managed to make shopping easier for Catholics by aggregating in one place, hundreds to thousands of products sold by a virtual shopping mall's variety of vendors. Monastic orders sell their handcrafted wares alongside renowned jewelers, and mom-and-pop cottage industries.
The end result is a wide selection of Catholic products for serious shoppers.
Catholic Online has also unveiled unlimited listings for advertising clients, to help improve both selection and sales for advertising clients.
Shoppers who want to find the best deals on Catholic products can start by browsing here.
Prospective merchants can also find details on advertising packages by following this link.
Happy shopping and a blessed Lent to all, from Catholic Online!
