STOREFRONT FUNERAL HOME

JOURNEY JOURNAL... Lakeland, Florida

A PALL AT THE MALL

Though the Casket Store and Funeral Chapel is a full-service funeral home, its exterior is different because it is located in the corner of a strip mall.  Its interior, likewise, diverges from the norm because it is efficiently compact, with a gathering space accentuated by a large desk, a chapel, and a selection room adjoining a large room full of casket models.  The number of these burial receptacles poses a significant contrast to the growing absence of them in standard funeral homes.  Instead of sample caskets or pieces of them, representations of them have trended toward the use of kiosks or large-screen monitors to serve as catalog substitutes for perusal of products.
