We’ve listed a number of things that we do differently. You’ll find it on the back page of our price booklet. An obvious difference is in our slogan: NO BLACK SUITS! This means that when you drop in, or we come to your home, we’ll be dressed fairly casually. We perform a professional service, but dislike the stereotypical image of the funeral director (i.e. black suit/dripping with jewelry). Besides, we can’t afford a Rolex.
For many people, the biggest difference is how they feel when they come to our place in Kamloops (210 Lansdowne). I say “place” because it doesn’t resemble the classic funeral home at all. From the outside, it looks rather modest. This is perhaps an understatement. The building was constructed in the 1940’s and I think it was intended to be a shed!
When you come inside, however, it looks and feels like a nice, clean, modern little house. There’s a living room to sit in, or you can gather around the kitchen table. People tell us how comfortable they feel here.
