What does “shop local” mean when referring to the funeral business?

By Brent Gordon

In the advent of the “shop local” movement here in Durant, we have been made aware of the importance of spending our resources in a way that best helps our community. We are privileged to have organizations such as the Durant Main Street and The Durant Chamber that sees the value of local business and urge its support. Here in Durant we have good people in great businesses that we can support. Many of our local businesses have been here for years and some have only just begun. This support is what builds a strong community foundation.

What Funeral Home is locally owned and operated?

Most people never consider what funeral home they will use until the need arises, much less if that funeral home is a locally owned firm. It’s not uncommon for a family to not have to use a funeral home for years or even decades at a time. When a death occurs it is difficult to make wise choices like what funeral home will we use, what are the cost of these services and what type of service is best for our family.

Making an informed decision to “shop local” is equally important when choosing a funeral home. Gordon Funeral Home is the ONLY locally owned owner-operated funeral home in Durant.  I have no entities in other cities, I don’t have multiple firms across multiple states and my family roots are solely here in Durant and Bryan County.

What are the advantages to using the locally owned funeral home over the other cooperate firms with multiple locations?

  • No matter if it is during the day or in the middle of the night when you call Gordon Funeral Home you will talk with the owner of the funeral home. It is important during a difficult time to lean on someone you know and trust to take care of the sensitive needs of your family during this time of grief.
  • When arranging the service I will assist you from the beginning to the end. You will not have to worry about details surrounding the service we provide.
  • When using Gordon Funeral Home you are supporting a local family. Our resources do not go to other cities and businesses in other states. We are local and our sole focus is local.
  • Other firms sometimes charge $10,000 and even $12,000 dollars for a service. These charges are very difficult for families to pay and it even causes more stress during a time when families should concentrate on healing.

I have no corporate cost and overhead and can customize a funeral or cremation service at the lowest possible cost in Durant. We are the most affordable funeral and cremation service in Durant. My focus is to provide my hometown friends, neighbors and community family with the most genuine caring service at the most affordable cost.
