It seems the motivations of today's adult consumers are different than those of earlier generations. So much so, Hazel Barkworth, author of the 2014 Forbes online article "Six Trends that Will Shape Consumer Behavior this Year" writes "The cultural shifts we are witnessing show a move towards the wholehearted and intense. People want all aspects of their lives to be rich and full." And from our perspective, we've got to agree with her.
But we also see other factors shaping and defining the motivations of the individuals and families we've served recently, illustrating them in the first of three articles listed below. If you'd like to get to know all about you, we encourage reading it. We are confident learning more about you–today's consumer–will prove to be eye-opening. The remaining articles are intended to give you the detailed information you need when making the cremation decision. Remember, if you have questions or concerns about anything you read here, we encourage you to call us at 503-656-9177, or send us an email using the form on our Contact Us page.
