business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Los Angeles Times on how a business in the ultimate car-culture region, Southern California, has come up with a unique take on convenience.

The Robert L. Adams Mortuary in Compton has installed a new drive-through facility, allowing people to view caskets and visit wakes without actually getting out of their cars. Or even stopping, if they are in a real hurry.

"I think it's wonderful, "said one woman told the Times. "It's nice to be able to drive through. You don't have to go inside. It's real convenient."

The owner of the mortuary said that she believes the feature gives her facility a differential competitive advantage.
