It is an upscale clothing store founded by Josef Vangel in 1939, an Austrian tailor that fled his home country of Austria sometime before the outbreak of World War II. They sell fine clothing and various sundries.
Vangel's is located in Midtown, at the southern entrance of Lincoln Park. They employ their own security guard who will respond to any violence inside of the store or aimed directly at the store. The sales clerk is an immigrant of French, Swiss or Belgian descent judged on her heavy French accent. The store also accommodates a second floor; however, this is inaccessible and completely empty.
The large glass windows at either end can be easily smashed by a car, and this is effectively equivalent to robbing the shop.
