We Feel you have a right to know:
When choosing a funeral home, you may want to research whether or not the business is owned by a local family or run by a large corporation. There is a difference.
Over the past several years, large multi-national organizations have been purchasing funeral homes at an alarming rate. The early nineties saw hundreds of family operated funerals homes across North America brought into the fold of large multi-national firms. Today there are many funeral service providers to choose from. What you may not know is that not all funeral homes are owned by local families. While they may have been operating in your community for years, and their names have not changed, some funeral homes have sold out to national and even international conglomerates.
These funeral service conglomerates keep the original family name on their businesses because they know that at our greatest time of need you are more likely to turn to a local family you feel you can trust than to a national chain you know nothing about.
Is Gloversville Funeral Service independently owned or is it operated by a large chain or corporation?
Gloversville Funeral Service is locally owned and operated by the Mackey Family. We are not owned or operated by a large corporation as are some of the local funeral homes in Gloversville.
