Starbucks is coming soon to a funeral near you. According to local news channel WSPA, Robinson Funeral Home in Easley, South Carolina has plans to install an onsite coffee shop called Coffee Corner with drinks and food supplied by the coffee chain. They will charge for drinks at the shop, although owner Chris Robinson adds that they will continue serving their house coffee to mourners free of charge.
The best part? According to the AP, the coffee shop will be open to anyone, include those "who don't need services from the funeral home." Hey everybody, let's all go hang out at the funeral home. At least they've got Wi-Fi? The shop opens sometime in August; below, a local news report.
