When you look for a business to make purchases from, or use the services of, many factors play a role in who you decide to do business with, reputation, value , convenience and for many family and locally owned. When you do business with a locally owned business it puts more money back into the local economy, provides support for local causes and charities, and lets you deal directly with the owner for the best buying expense possible.
For generations funeral homes have taken pride in being family owned establishments who were involved in their community, this tradition started changing when funeral homes merged with others and formed large corporations that started buying funeral homes across the country. Some local funeral homes are corporately owned, some family owned, and some are owned by a local family.
Just because a funeral home advertises that it is "family owned" does not mean that it is locally owned. If that family owns multiple funeral homes in several states and is headquartered in another state the benefit of doing business with a family owned business is pretty much lost.
Locally owned funeral homes give back to our schools, our churches and civic organizations. We buy from local vendors and help our community grow and improve.
Chapman Funeral Home has been owned and operated locally for over fifty years, please consider the advantages of using a locally owned funeral home and let our family serve yours.
