Coffee and Coffins

The Robinson Funeral Home in Easley is the dead center of town, and people will soon be dying to get there for more than the obvious reason.

The funeral home and crematory is adding a new section to its existing facilities named "Coffee Corner," where a Starbucks will open.

The owner, Chris Robinson, explains how coffee has always been part of the family business, saying his great-grandfather started the funeral home inside a main street general store, (what?) where people would gather and drink coffee.

Okay then.
