Starbucks To Open Inside A Funeral Home: Fantastic Idea!
"Those grieving the dearly departed at Robinson Funeral Home in Easley will soon have a little something extra to soothe the pain: a cup of Starbucks` joe.
The fourth-generation funeral home and crematory is adding a new section to its existing facilities which includes business offices, a chapel, and a special wing aptly named `Coffee Corner,` where soon a Starbucks will open."
There is nothing odd, sacrilegious, or tacky about a funeral home that includes a Starbucks restaurant.
The funeral home includes a chapel; many people find comfort in the death of loved ones by meditating on spiritual values.
But others find more comfort in a good cup of Joe, after I drink my first cup of coffee in the morning I am emboldened to face the trials and tribulations I will be sure to face.
A cup of Java will steel me for the ordeal of looking at the remains of a loved one; maybe the Robinsons should also add a bar to their fine establishment.
I love coffee; I hope my loved ones will sprinkle coffee beans on my coffin.
