‘Til We Meet Again Finds New Life in Fort Wayne
Wichita, Kansas (September 6, 2012) The Willow Group, LLC, franchisor for ‘Til We Meet Again, a new retail concept specializing in the sale of custom-made, personalized, lifestyle, licensed and private label caskets, urns, jewelry and funerary products, announces the grand opening of its Fort Wayne, Indiana retail store location on Saturday, September 15th, 2012.
A new and unique retail concept, ‘Til We Meet Again stores are the only ones of their kind. With locations in 3 states – Kansas, Indiana and Wisconsin (opening September 8th in Milwaukee), and two other locations opening soon ‘Til We Meet Again continues to grow. ‘Til We Meet Again provides an opportunity to celebrate the lives of loved ones by offering a limitless selection of custom and personalized caskets, urns and other memorial products.
The retail stores of ‘Til We Meet Again have a comfortable, bright friendly atmosphere versus a funeral home setting where at times the experience can seem emotionally overwhelming. For the Fort Wayne location only, The Willow Group has modified its model to accommodate the needs of Fort Wayne residents by allowing the franchisee to locate their store outside of the super-regional mall setting. The only super-regional mall in Fort Wayne terminated the contract with the original ‘Til We Meet Again retail store in May 2012 prior to its grand opening.
Custom burial is resonating with baby boomers and younger generations reared on self- expression and turned off by the somber mood of traditional funerals. “We’re not only helping an industry that needs change, we’re helping break the taboo about caskets,” says Nathan Smith, Co-Founder of ‘Til We Meet Again and President of The Willow Group, LLC.
The Fort Wayne, Indiana location will celebrate its grand opening with an invitation only VIP party on Friday, September 14th and a public grand opening on Saturday, September 15th from 10 am to 7 pm. The new location will be located at 6413 Lima Road, Fort Wayne, Indiana in front of Meijer and next to Starbuck’s.
‘Til We Meet Again will be open Monday thru Friday 10 am to 8 pm and 10 am to 7 pm on Saturdays. Customers will also have the option of scheduling private appointments if needed.
