Carriage Services to Acquire Funeral Home Group
Carriage Services, Inc. announced today that it has acquired the Schooler Funeral Group located in Amarillo, Texas. The business was established by the former owner, Jim Schooler, who will continue to be actively involved in the day-to-day operations of the business.
Carriage currently owns two other funeral homes and a cemetery in the Amarillo market. Additionally, in late 2010 Carriage welcomed two very well-respected funeral leaders from within the local community, Garre and Tommy LaGrone.
With the addition of this business and the involvement of the Schooler family, Carriage’s presence in this market is positioned to become the leading local operator.
J. Bradley Green, Executive Vice President, Strategic Development of Carriage, said, “The addition of this respected business combined with our current presence in the market will allow Carriage to continue its commitment to upholding and building upon the standard of service, excellence and reputation for which it’s known.”
Carriage Services is a leading provider of death care services and merchandise in the United States. Carriage operates 150 funeral homes in 25 states and 33 cemeteries in 12 states.
