Til’ We Meet Again, Personalized Casket Store Launches First Franchise Location

April 26, 2012

Wichita, Kansas – 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 debut of its first franchise in North America with the opening of ‘Til We Meet Again in Fort Wayne, Indiana.  Located in Glenbrook Square Mall at 4201 Coldwater Road, Fort Wayne, Indiana, the store will celebrate its official grand opening on Friday, May 11th and Saturday, May 12th.

A new and unique retail concept, ‘Til We Meet Again stores are the only ones of their kind.  ‘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.  In an effort to cater to the ever increasing interest of consumer’s desire for non-traditional funerals and instead have a celebration of life, ‘Til We Meet Again has determined the most effective way to reach consumers is through a retail store set in a super-regional mall setting.  ‘Til We Meet Again offers a non-threatening connection between the consumer and the funeral home.  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.

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 Thursday, May 10th and a public grand opening on Friday, May 11th and Saturday, May 12th.

‘Til We Meet Again Fort Wayne will be open seven days a week, Monday thru Saturday 10 am to 9 pm and Noon to 6 on Sundays.  Customers will also have the option of scheduling private appointments if needed.
