EASLEY, SC (WHAS11) -- Starbucks really is everywhere. A funeral home in Easley, South Carolina has added a Starbucks.

The Robinson family has always offered piping hot coffee to grieving families. Now, they have chosen Starbucks to help them soothe the pain of losing a loved one.

"If this provides them a little escape and gives them a break from the stress they're going through, then that's what it's all about. It's to make them feel better," say Chris Robinson, the funeral home owner.

The Starbucks will be right next to the chapel and open to the public.

The store will have employees, a cash register and everything you would expect to find in a regular Starbucks.

Robinson says the funeral home will still offer the free home-brewed coffee they have always served, this is just something a little extra.

Incidentally, this will be the town's first Starbucks.
