Espinosa Funeral Home closing Sept. 7By Trisha Maldonado
Espinosa Funeral Home will be closing its doors September 7.
After three years of service to the Douglas community Espinosa Funeral Home Director Alex Espinosa announced last week he has decided to close his facility located on San Antonio and 8th Street.
“Douglas isn’t capable of supporting two funeral homes,” Espinosa said.
His three full-time workers will be moving with him to his Bisbee office which remains open and is located at 1094 W Highway 92, Bisbee, where he is currently the only funeral home.
“Times are tough, the economy has impacted every business here in Douglas,” Espinosa said. “I’m really just consolidating the funeral home in Douglas with the one in Bisbee.”
Espinosa will continue to offer his services to the Douglas community without any additional cost.
“I will still continue to offer the small town treatment,” he said.
